This just in! Nothing like a last-minute mama running around, trying to find some good activities for her little ones on this historic day, right?
Here’s what I found, thanks to some of my blogging friends who work a whole lot harder than I do and have really done their homework:
- Check out a very cool mom blog I now subscribe to who’s based right here in DC. She’s really done an awesome job of finding coloring pages, connect-the-dots, and color-by-numbers for today’s events! Her name is Tech Savvy Mama, and she rocks!
- After checking out her site, I was curious myself, so I came across some more coloring pages and activities. These are a little more simple and will be great for the little, little ones.
I’ll use some of the coloring pages today and keep my fingers crossed that we have some quiet, interested little artists while my friends, family, and I watch the historic address. There’s a ton of opportunity for learning today; conversations about the event, the Secret Service (all kiddos are amazed by them!), the swearing-in, Obama’s family, and the reason for the crowds–will do more for our little ones than we can imagine.
