3 Ways to Celebrate Presidents' Day With Your Politikids

3 Ways to Celebrate Presidents' Day With Your Politikids

Today is Presidents' Day and a prime opportunity to talk to your kids about our nation's history and why some schools, banks, and stores are closed to honor our forefathers. Most youngsters don't need detailed political rants or your take on what George Washington would have said about the credit crisis; here are some politically correct ideas for broaching the subject of former White House residents with your children.

  • Read a Political Book: The What Presidents Are Made of book ($13) is a good starter for young children interested in history. It focuses on 17 US presidents and includes antidotes that show the human side of our former presidents. For example, George Washington is "made of good deeds." Here are some other reading suggestions for teaching tots about the presidential process.
  • Make a Patriotic Treat: Celebrate democracy with your lil darlings by making red, white, and blue snacks like an American Flag Cake, Fruit Kabobs or Obama cupcakes.
  • Dress Up in Your Political Gear: If you purchased or were given political apparel for your child during 2008's campaign, bring it out of the closet today so your tots can show their colors.
