Election Day Options for Little Learners

Election Day Options for Little Learners: The REAL election is far too grusome to share with little ones, so here are a few alternatives that will help the kiddos learn in a way they can understand


 I'm tired of watching the attack ads all over the tv, my phone ringing constantly, getting flyer after flyer in the mail, and the signs all over town. Luckily, this campaign season is almost over, thank goodness!

 I also think it's important to teach the importance of the election to the little ones.  
But in a gentler, kinder fashion.



We vote for our favorite indoor recess game! Click the above image or click HERE for this freebie for Election Day.  It includes ballots, graphs, and suggestions for the day.

There's a smaller, freebie version of this activity, which can be found here:

Kids always need brain breaks, and squeezing in a little patriotism doesn't hurt! Click the image or click HERE to download this freebie!
