President's Day Activities

I was trying to think of something fun to do with my kids for Presidents’ day. I found some activities where you race each other and name all the presidents, but really… I have a hard time remembering the names of my kids!  So with this one I let my kids decide what they wanted to do with their ‘Presidents’.  They came up with 8 things to do with coins that have the presidents on them, so sorry kids the Chuck E. Cheese tokens are out.

4 Ideas will be posted today and the other 4 on Monday…Why???  I don’t know…Missy said so!

They were easy and don’t require a lot of prep time {{my kinda activities}}.

1.  Lasso Lincoln

This game got me laughing…

1.  Freeze a penny into an ice cube (we just put a little water in the bottom of a cup and threw in a penny)

2.  Make a slip knot in a piece of string

3.  Try to lasso the ice cube.  I put other ice cubes in to keep Lincoln from thawing too fast. President's Day Activities

4.  Keep trying…you can do it…{{well maybe not}}

5.  Here’s a hint:  Add some salt…put the string on top of the ice cube and throw some salt on.  Wait for a minute.
