President's Day Craft
Commemorating President's Day doesn't need to be confined to reciting dry, historical facts. Show your child how to celebrate the holiday creatively! Construct replicas of two of the most famous U.S. Presidents—Abraham Lincoln and George Washington—using toilet paper rolls as their foundation. An afternoon of fun can coincide with paying tribute to key historical figures! This fun craft also taps into your child's creativity and fine motor skills.
Have your child decide which president he'd like to model his figurine after, and then use the Internet to remind him of Lincoln or Washington's facial features and typical clothing style. For Mr. Lincoln, suggest that he could wear a black suit with long pants, a coat and a tie. For Mr. Washington, suggest blue pants, a red coat and a white wig.
