For many, Presidents Day means a long, restful weekend. But it’s also a chance to do something meaningful. Here are a few family-friendly ways to celebrate President’s Day:
- Learn about a president. President’s Day was originally created in honor of George Washington’s birthday (Feb. 22), but it evolved into a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents. Whether you choose to study George Washington or any president who came after him, pick someone whose life interests you.
- Memorize the Presidents. That might seem ambitious, but it’s easily doable if you put the names to the tune of a familiar song, like “Yankee Doodle.”
- Visit a historic site or national park. Mount Rushmore is an obvious (and great) choice, but you can also get a lot out of visiting a park in your state or local area. Go to the National Park Service website to find a nearby park.
- Visit a U.S. history museum. Museums offer a more immersive way of learning about history. And there are many to choose from. Check your local area or plan a family trip.
- Have a picnic. If a trip out of town isn’t feasible, connecting with nature can help you relax, reflect and practice gratitude.
- Write a letter to the President. If you have kids, this is a great way to teach them about civic engagement. Follow these tips for sending a letter to the White House.
