There is no better place to celebrate the long #President’sDay weekend than in South Dakota’s Black Hills National Forest, the southeastern face of Mount Rushmore. Not only is it surrounded by natural beauty, it is chock full of history that began in 1927! The great thing is that you can make plans to visit anytime, just make sure you strap on your Ride-On Carry-On to your suitcase and the kids’ airport experience will be fun and easy! If hopping on a plane is not within your plans with your Pre-K through 8th grader, Scholastic’s Presidents’ Day: Everything You Need offers tons of ways to expand their knowledge about the two great Presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln with the use of videos, worksheets and games; not to mention some fun crafts that includes a pencil holder and a mask.

And if you and your kids prefer to make some popcorn and curl up on the couch to watch some videos, the U.S. Government kids site has some interesting videos: Abraham Lincoln’s Birthplace, Presidents of the United States and Meet Amazing Americans. There is also one that will help explain the Electoral College and better prepare you for the November 2016 Presidential Election. Whether you decide to travel, learn or shop today – make it Presidential!
