George Washington Puppet

George Washington Head Puppet on a Dowel

Although we celebrate President’s Day on February 19th this year, February 22nd is Washington’s official birth date and the FreeKidsCrafts Team has designed a puppet that will make if fun to learn more about our 1st president. If you’d like to set up a situation where Washington and Lincoln have an imaginary conversation with each other about life in America today, you can add our Abraham Lincoln puppet to the fun.

Trivia: On March 14, 1905, at his second inauguration Roosevelt wore a ring with a lock of Lincoln’s hair in it . As a child Roosevelt had watched Lincoln’s funeral procession pass by his house in New York. Source: Smithsonian – Ten Fascinating Presidential Facts to Impress on Presidents’ Day
