We did a few activities today to celebrate Presidents Day.
First Hailey found an Abraham Lincoln mask in one of my Mailbox magazines that she wanted to make. I cut the middle out of a paper plate and then she painted it.
I cut out a hat and glued some popsicle sticks on. I used clothes pins hold everything together until the glue dried.
Next we made George Washington’s cherry tree. I traced Hailey’s arm and hand in pencil and then she painted inside the lines to make the tree. (I found this idea at Preschool Playbook.)

Next we made Abraham Lincoln’s house. Hailey glued some popsicle sticks on to make the house. (I also found this idea at Preschool Playbook.)

Then we did a little experiment to see if we could clean some pennies. Hailey mixed 1 tsp of salt with 1/4 cup of vinegar.
We found some dirty pennies.
As soon as Hailey dropped them into the mixture they started coming clean. It made a big difference!
Happy Presidents Day!
