Presidents’ Day is celebrated the third Monday in February every year, with this year’s date being Feb. 15. As another presidential election is under way, many classrooms will be talking about how we elect a president, who’s going to be running and what it means to have such an important job. You can keep the discussion going back at home by making some craft projects that celebrate some of our country’s earliest leaders, thanks to this week’s roundup of Presidents’ Day crafts.
