I was wondering how to celebrate Presidents Day today and use my husband's pewter presidents at the same time. He has a childhood collection of all of the presidents through Ford. I decided to do a treasure hunt to find the presidents. I read the kids a strange or famous fact about each president and then the kids were given a clue based on the fact to find them. For example ~ George Washington had fake teeth and was so concerned about everyone keeping their teeth clean that he had his horses' teeth brushed every day. They found him hidden in the toothbrush drawer.
Some other fun ones were:
Theodore Roosevelt was next to a big walking stick. He is famous for saying, "Speak softly and carry a big stick."
William Harrison died from pneumonia after standing out in the cold for over two hours giving his inauguration speech. The mitten drawer seemed like an appropriate place.
FDR was found in the loaf of bread to represent the bread and soup lines of the Great Depression.
This turned out to be a really fun way to learn about the presidents. I think I may have started a new tradition. LOL! So, what did you all do for Presidents Day?
