Not only is February the month of love, but it is also the month where we dedicate a day for presidents. George Washington was born on February 22, 1732 and Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809. Since February was a good month for important American President’s birthdays, the American government decided it would be a great idea to celebrate each year with a National Holiday.

President’s Day is celebrated on the third Monday of February every year and since it gives us a long weekend to sleep in, do some activities in the comfort of your own home, or go out on an adventure, it gives us time to spend with our favorite people and talk about our favorite presidents.

Check out these president’s day crafts, games, and worksheets for kids.
