Colour a poster! Week 1

My name’s Marido and I work at the Museum. I'm at home now like you are. How about we connect here every Wednesday? Would you like that?

We have a vast and really beautiful collection of posters at the Museum. They help us to understand what is happening to us all today.

Once a week, I will make one available for everyone to enjoy colouring. I’d like to share some pointers with your mum, your dad, or the person who is taking care of you. If they agree, I’d be very happy to receive your drawing. Thank you!

For the grown-ups:

To begin a discussion with the child about what is happening to us today, we suggest you ask the following questions during the colouring.
You can share the drawing with us by using #RedCrossMuseum on social media or by sending it to us by post: International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, Avenue de la Paix 17, 1202 Geneva.
