Celebrate Lincoln’s Birthday With Activities and The Power of the Penny

Wednesday, February 12, will mark the birthday of our beloved sixteenth President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. We celebrate his achievements like preserving the Union during the Civil War and his Emancipation Proclamation ending slavery. There are many activities you can do with your children to celebrate the former president and all of his achievements.

Here are a few of our favorite Lincoln’s Birthday activities.

1. To start the day, you should take the family out and go buy a Lincoln hat. Did you know that President Lincoln used his hat to store letters and other documents? His birthday is a great opportunity to be like Abe Lincoln.

2. Another great activity to celebrate Lincoln’s birthday is to play with Lincoln Logs. Either pull out your old set (we know you had a set when you were young) or go out and buy a set for your children to enjoy. Nothing pulls a family together than a good session of building with Lincoln Logs.

3. Did you know that Lincoln was the first president to sport a beard while in office? Celebrate our 16th president’s birthday in style by sporting your own beard. We don’t mean you have to grow it yourself, a store bought beard or one constructed from cotton or other materials will do just fine. We highly suggest you get creative with this one. Go ahead, grow a beard and have a blast.

4. Finally, celebrate Abraham Lincoln on his birthday by throwing a Penny Party. These awesome parties combine reading our wonderful book, The Power of the Penny, with fun activities like the Penny Circle Game, a Penny Hunt and making tasty Penny Cupcakes.

Whatever you and your family choose to do to celebrate Lincoln’s Birthday, make it fun and make it memorable.
