I think this Abraham Lincoln President’s Day craft is genius! All credit goes to Emma’s excellent kindergarten teacher – she brought it home from school on Friday.
This is the first year any of my kids have “gotten” the idea of what a president is – and with elections coming up this fall, it seems like a good time to talk to them about it!
We talked about how being president is a job, where the president lives, and some of the things the president does: go to meetings, talk to people about what would be good for this country, meet with leaders of other countries.
What have you been learning about? From last week’s links, I LOVED this “Make Your Own Elmo” party favor for littles from Growing A Jeweled Rose – fabulous!!!

Very cute! My youngest daughter was so excited to tell me all she learned about the Presidents at school this year. Usually we do something special at home too and learn about a specific president, but Monday was a little crazy. We’ll be celebrating late.
I’m embarrassed to say that this year we did not discuss President’s Day at all. Oops.
This was our first year doing anything for President’s Day!
This craft is so cute. We also started talking more about Presidents at home. Now Anna wants to run for a president with “No more wars” program. Hopefully US will be ready for that by the time she is an adult :)
I was so excited to pop over, and discover I had been featured here! What a pleasant surprise! :)))) I look forward to discovering many great ideas this week through Learning Laboratory!
I LOVED your make-your-own Elmo playdough!!!
Cute idea! Today we went on to a homeschool day at our history museum. It was about mammoths and mastodons. We all loved it!
What a cute President’s Day craft! I was thinking today how I didn’t have any good crafts to make.
We made a log cabin too!! I love how her’s turned out. I got mine from Oranges Are Carrots. Thanks for hosting and sharing!
I meant that I got the idea from Oranges Are Carrots. That sentence looked funny so I had to leave another comment! :)
This is adorable!
What a great craft project!
Oh that is so super cute, and easy which I like.
Did she think a president’s job sounded very boring?
She said she wants her dad to be president. She thinks the white house looks like a cool place to live =)
I love the penny in the window! The log cabin came out so well!
Emma’s craft looks great and sounds like you’ve had interesting conversations! :)
