Happy Presidents Day! We love Presidents Day in our home, because we use the day to craft, learn, and have a fun little party to celebrate our founding fathers. A Presidents Day party? Yup, you read that right. Here are three super easy Presidents Day crafts to do during your Presidents Day party.
Googly Eyed Lincoln
Grab a bag of googly eyes, a glue stick, white and black construction paper. Let your kiddos cut out the shape of President Lincoln’s top hat, and a triangle for his beard. Take 2 googly eyes, the cut outs, and create your own googly-eyed Lincoln!
Using note cards, or word strips from the dollar store, have your kids write the last names of former and current presidents. Don’t worry parents: you can google the list of presidents, to make it easier on yourself. Or, test your own memory, and see if YOU can name them all and have your kids spell all the names correctly.
Pipe Cleaner President
This one is so simple, because your kids get to use their imagination! Provide red, blue, black and even white pipe cleaners. Have your kiddos make their own mini presidents using the multi-colored pipe cleaners. Give your President Lincoln a top hat, or your President Washington a full head of white hair. We kept it simple by making the faces a circle, and the bodies an oval or triangle shape.
Don’t forget about the snacks! I keep it super, and simple, by putting out SUPERPRETZEL® Soft Pretzels and SUPERPRETZEL® Softstix Cheddar Cheese Filled Soft Pretzel Sticks. We love that these are microwaveable and ready in seconds, so we don’t have to stop the fun to make our party snacks.
We also love that we can find SUPERPRETZEL® at our local grocery store’s freezer section, and that the SUPERPRETZEL® website has a rocking coupon available for download! Print off your SUPERPRETZEL® coupon and grab a box or two of soft pretzels or Softstix the next time you’re at the grocery store: SUPERPRETZEL® coupon (Desktop only).
Let Presidents Day turn into a super fun day for everyone in your family. Enjoy doing these easy Presidents Day crafts together, and enjoying your snacks!
