Colombia is a country that is afflicted by violent conflict. Nowadays many Colombians suffer as a result of it, especially children who are directly affected, either physically or emotionally. Peace education is a very effective tool for change, thus enables people and communities to start building processes of change together. Children are the present and future of any country and so working with them is a constructive way to start processes of change. In order to help change the current violent situation in Colombia, an intervention for building a culture of peace with Colombian children through playful interactions has been created. Taking into account the results and successes of previous research carried out by Villar-Guhl (2007), it has been possible to continue using games and activities as vehicles to work with children for peace. By doing so, it has been possible to develop a new way of empowering children, by encouraging critical thinking about their current situation in order to help them to raise their voices and participate in building a new and positive future for themselves and their communities. This intervention is a tool that starts the work of changing the current culture of violence in Colombia, hence beginning the process of transforming it into a culture of peace.
