President's day

We celebrated with a fun craft and snack day! We made Lincoln masks, ate flag cookies and pocket apple and cherry pies. I really think all the kids got a kick out of the day. Later that day my kids and I made Lincoln faces out of our handprints. Paint the palm with a peach colored paint (white with a little orange), and then paint their fingers, but not the thumb, black. Press onto a piece of paper and let dry. When dry, draw on a face, and glue a hat made of consruction paper.

The books we read were:
President's day by Ann Rockwell
President's day by Margaret McNamera
Jon, Paul, George,& Ben by Lane Smith

Our American flag cookies, and another mom made the mini pies.  I know the piping isn't the best on the cookies but that is what happens when you decorate at 12:30 at night.  Oh well!
