President's Day Crafts and Activities for Kids

George Washington was born Feb 22, 1732 and Abraham Lincoln was born Feb 12, 1809.  Since February was such a good month for important American president's birthdays the American government decided it would be a great idea to celebrate each year with a National Holiday. 

President's Day is celebrated on the third Monday of February every year.  It mainly recognizes George Washington's birthday but I think it's a good time to talk about your favourite president, think about what you might do if you were the president and consider what qualities you think a good president should have.

Here's a funny fact.  In 1752 (when George Washington was 20 years old), the people in Britain and the United States changed their calendar.  Before then, they used the Julian calendar and Washington's birthday was on Feb 11, 1731.  After they changed to the Gregorian calendar, his birthday changed to Feb 22, 1732!  George Washington decided to keep up with the times and celebrated his birthday based on the new calendar -- ask just about any adult and they'd likely agree to rewind their age a year too!

Another fun fact:  In 1902 Theodore ("Teddy") Roosevelt went on a hunting trip.  At the end of the day, he hadn't had much success, so a captured black bear cub (a baby bear) was brought for him to shoot.  The president said no way and the story touched the nation.  Soon a small toy bear was created that became popular around the world for generations to come -- the "Teddy Bear".   Try making the American Bear Paper Craft while you tell this tale.


Here are a few "more generic" USA crafts that I thought would compliment the day:
