This year, turn the holiday into a fun and educational experience for both you and your children with a patriotic adventure at Pretend City Children’s Museum to honor our presidents for their contributions while at the same time learning a thing or two about the job of president. Activities throughout the day will include:


Smart Art (Art Studio): President’s Day Masks > Children will transform paper plates into our nation’s former presidents for a fun take home craft.


Sensational Story Time (11:30am): One Vote, Two Votes, I Vote, You Vote > The Cat in the Hat looks at how we vote, why we vote, and who we vote for in a rhyming book that’s perfect for President’s Day reading! In a simple rhyme, the Cat in the Hat introduces early readers to the concept and practice of voting—with a focus on the American presidency! Learn the basic principles of democracy, how political parties are formed, why Election Day is held in early November, and much, much more!


Holiday History (3:30pm): If I Were President > During this activity, young guests will learn about some of the presidents of our past and about the office of president and the job duties of the president. Children will then discuss what they would do if they were elected president and make their own campaign poster to support that promise.


Patriotic Parade (4:50pm): Today we will have a special patriotic parade
