Here is what One and Two will be doing today:
And for Three:
We'll look at pictures of the first presidents and then do this craft.
Presidential Wig (from www.everythingpreschool.com/themes/presidentsday/art.htm)
What You Need:
Packing Peanuts or Cotton
What You Do:
Talk to your children about how the president's uses to wear white wigs then have them make a wig. They do this by simply cutting one side off of a small lunch bag and then gluing packing peanuts or cotton all over it. When it dries your children can look quite presidential!
Also from everything preschool:
