President's Day Crafts for Kids

Did you know President’s Day is actually an unofficial nickname for a Federal holiday called Washington’s Birthday by the U.S. government? That’s right!

George Washington, the first President of the United States, was born on Feb. 22, 1732, which is why the holiday is celebrated during the third week of February. However, the holiday is now used as an occasion to celebrate all of the country’s presidents. The colloquial name President’s Day was deliberately coined to broaden the scope of the holiday.

Regardless of which president you’d like to celebrate this year, the holiday offers a great opportunity to treat your little ones to some President’s Day crafts.
