5) Have (or help) children act out this interview of President Washington. (Requires a free Teachers pay Teachers account to download.) You could use props and improvise costumes – you may even want to make a tricorn hat for the President. This would make an excellent little something to video for the grandparents.

6) Use construction paper, cotton balls, and glue to make George Washington! (No instructions, picture only.)

7) Optional, but recommended: make cherry pie! I like this recipe. (It works just as well with frozen cherries as long as they’re thawed.)
