President’s Day Book-Making Kids’ Craft

kids' crafts

Help your child to better understand American history with a President’s Day activity. Create a portrait-filled biography of a president together, writing and drawing a historical account of the figure’s life. Start with some basic research, looking online or reading books about presidents. Review a few different presidents and ask your child to choose one for this project. Later on they can go back and create another biography book for other presidents.

Materials

  • Cardboard (reuse the front and back of a cereal, cracker or other box)
  • Scissors
  • Construction paper
  • Markers or crayons
  • A hole punch
  • Yarn

How-to Steps

  1. Create one page for each era or significant moment in the president’s life. Help your child to make a timeline of specific points, dividing them up into different pages.
  2. Draw a picture on each page. Using the construction paper and markers or crayons, your child can illustrate an event.
  3. Add words. You may need to do this for your younger child. Older kids can write a sentence or two to describe the illustrations.
  4. Punch two or three holes on the left side of each piece of construction paper, making sure they are in the same area on each page.
  5. Cut the cardboard into the same size as the construction paper. Have your child draw a book cover onto the front.
  6. Punch holes on the left side, in the same space as the holes in the construction paper.
  7. Thread cut pieces of yarn through the holes to bind the book together.
