Election Day, by Jennifer

Election Day is in just over a month and no matter which way you lean politically, this is a great learning opportunity for your kids!  We’ve been studying the presidents all year and will add in some election activities in the next few weeks, too.  Here are a few fun ideas you might want to try:

  • With your older kids, review this poster about how to become president.  They may not understand that it’s not just a matter of getting the most votes!
  • Let your kids vote!  We’ve done a dinner vote before, but you could choose anything you want—an outing, a DVD to watch, a game.  Just have fun with it!
  • Have an election night party!  Make some of the presidents’ favorite foods and try them out.  We’ve been using this list all year and we’re going to make some of our favorites for election night.  You can also try these election party games.
  • Last but not least, vote!  Take your kids with you and let them see how it’s done!

Happy planning!
