February 15th is observed as President's Day, a national holiday. Many children don't even know this simple fact, but merely see this day as a free day with no school. Here are four ideas to help you celebrate President's Day with your kids today.
- Research facts about our current President. We currently have a historical President. Spend an hour or so researching and learning about President Obama, then have a family meeting so everyone can share what they learned.
- Review all 44 Presidents. Most children (and many adults) barely even know the current President of the United States. Make a chart on poster board of the 44 Presidents of our country.
- Discuss some of the most memorable political advances by past Presidents. It's never too early to encourage political discussions and debates among your children.
- Look up famous Presidential quotes. Many pas Presidents are famously quoted, but children rarely know who said what. Think of some famous quotes, or look them up online, and share with your family.
