Have an (Inaugural) Ball

The presidential inauguration is just a week away and no matter what party you belong to (or don't belong to!) it's a great opportunity to teach your kids about our country. The buzz in our office is that some kids' schools will be holding festive celebrations, watching the inauguration on TV together in the gym, and having kids dress up in red, white, and blue. One school is even having a mock inaugural ball. (Too fun! Can I come?) If you want to get in on the festivities, Cindy over at Alpha Mom has a great Inauguration Party how-to, complete with free printables. Want more ideas? Check out these patriotic printables and festive puddings from Parentsmag.com.

    So fun! I love the idea of hosting an Inaugural Ball! What a great way to teach kids, tweens, and/or teens about the presidential office.
