President’s Day the Little Tikes™ Way

January 16, 2009

Children love the month of February because there are so many fun holidays to celebrate.  When Mary was teaching one of the classroom favorites was President’s Day because they talked about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.  She said she always brought in a several quarters and dollar bills to pass around the class to show the President’s faces and would send each child home with a shinny new penny to show their parents and talk about all they learned.   Why not use our Little Tikes™ Great Wolf Lodge® Log Cabin and turn it into Abe Lincoln’s cabin and discuss what it was like back when “Abe” was a boy.

One of Mary’s favorite President’s Day projects was for each child to save their milk carton from snack and rinse it out to make their very own log cabin.  You could get out your Little Tikes™ Picnic Tables and paint the sides of the milk carton with tacky glue and apply mini pretzel rods to the sides.  Fold construction paper over for the roof.

 

To celebrate George Washington’s Birthday try making tri-cornered hats and pretend to be George Washington and sing this song:

 

1.My hat it has 3 corners-    point to heart and then to top of head, the hold up 3 fingers

2. Three corners has my hat-    hold up 3 fingers and point to elbow for corners  then to  top of head

3. And had it not 3 corners-   hold up 3 fingers and then point to elbow

4. It would not be my hat—  point to heart and then to the top of head
