Celebrate President’s Day

Monday, February 18 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Honor our Presidents during our Patriotic Day at Pretend City

Can you name all of America’s past presidents?

If not, perhaps it’s time you and your family brushed up on your U.S. history – and what better time than the annual celebration of Presidents’ Day? This year, turn the holiday into a fun and educational experience for both you and your children. Enjoy a patriotic adventure at Pretend City Children’s Museum to honor our presidents for their important contributions. Families will also learn about the president’s job and what it means to be a leader.

Activities throughout the day will include:

    • Smart Art (in the Art Studio)President’s Day Art > Learn about our nation’s symbols by using them as inspiration for various art projects. From coin rubbings to fingerprint flags your little citizen is sure to show their artistic pride!  
    • Holiday History (11:00 am): The Little President, A Presidential Primer > Little learners will learn some major facts about our nation’s Presidential history with this storybook. Following this story, we’ll practice sorting and arranging items that are red, white, and blue.  
    • Gross Motor Activity (3:00 pm):  Coin Toss > Who says “throwing money away” isn’t beneficial? Today we will take the time to recognize the Presidential faces imprinted on coins before playing a tossing game to practice our gross motor and fundamental movement skills. 

Grown-up Tip: Give your child a chance to practice their voting skills at home by providing them 2 choices of what to wear for the day, have for a school snack, or what to eat for dinner. The key to this is to only provide them with a choice between 2 or 3 different options. Children feel empowered when they are given a choice. This is even if you are the one who determines what items they are choosing between.
