If you're looking for something different for a Martin Luther King Day activity, this is it. The "mpatapo" (em-pa-ta-poe) symbol means "knot of pacification/reconciliation".

I thought it was an appropriate representation of what Dr. King tried to do with his peaceful marches, sit-ins and speeches, as he sought nonviolent solutions for abolishing discrimination; so I featured it on this quick, easy and fun MLK Day craftivity.
