President’s Day Crafts

President’s Day falls on the third Monday of every February. It’s most commonly believed to celebrate all Presidents in U.S. history, but it actually mainly celebrates the birthdays of the illustrious George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, whose fall close to each other. When I was in grade school, I remember paying homage to their memory by dressing up as Presidents and spending the day making fun President’s Day crafts. Whether it’s in the classroom or at home, this is a perfect opportunity to creativity teach your kids about the leaders who shaped our country. Try these crafts below and spark a new interest in U.S. history!

Make this super easy craft with your kids and they can know what it feels like to be one of the greatest American politicians of all time.
