President’s Day is a special holiday in our home. Professor (11) is our resident history buff. One of his favorite history topics to study is American Presidents. He has had a fascination with their lives, presidencies, and effects on our history since a young age.
Professor devours books about Presidents. Nonfiction, fiction, and trivia. If a book has anything to do with Presidents, Professor will drop everything to read it.
Over the years, we have accumulated several large stacks of books and resources to learn about Presidents. (See pictures in our guest post at iHomeschool Network.) In our homeschool, these books are often scattered about and thumbed through at leisure.
To prepare for a grand celebration of President’s Day this year, I have gathered these 40 Fun & Easy Ways To Celebrate President’s Day. You will find a variety of free and affordable resources to help you celebrate this special day with us.
