George Washington's Cherry Tree
Submitted by Maggy
What You Need:
  • Paint
  • Paper
What You Do:
  • Paint each child's arm brown and their hand and fingers green. Have them put their arm and hand print on the paper to make a tree. Next let them dip their fingers in red paint to make cherries. This is a great lesson to talk about George Washington and His Cherry Tree
Presidential Wig
Submitted by Carla
What You Need:
  • Paper Bags
  • Packing Peanuts or Cotton
  • Glue
What You Do:
  • Talk to your children about how the president's uses to wear white wigs then have them make a wig. They do this by simply cutting one side off of a small lunch bag and then gluing packing peanuts or cotton all over it. When it dries your children can look quite presidential!
Lincoln Cabin
Submitted by Carla
What You Need:
  • Milk Cartons
  • Construction Paper
  • Glue
What You Do:
  • Clean and dry milk cartons and then staple the tops together. This forms the roof of your cabin. Next cover your cabin with brown construction paper using glue (for added emphasis use strips to make it look more like a log cabin). Next cut out two triangles to cover the angles of the roof and then cut out a door (don't cut completely out just three sides) and draw a square window on another side (other than the one with the door) - you can paint shutters around the door. Put a shiny penny with Lincoln facing out in the window or in the triangle of the roof. Finally, cut out a rectangle for the roof and attach it to the box. You can add a chimney or other details if you wish.
Idea:
Let your children do coin rubbings in order to celebrate president's day.
