President’s Day Activity - Abraham Lincoln Craft for Kids
This is a simple to make Abraham Lincoln craft that will remind kids of his memorable stovepipe hat. To make it you just need 2 pieces of black construction paper, 1 piece of white construction paper, scissors, tape, and a marker.
- Cut 2” off one piece of paper lengthwise to be the wide part of the bottom of the hat
- On the 2nd piece of black paper cut about 1” off each side curving the bottom parts.
- On 1/2 of a piece of white paper cut out a shape similar to mine to make the visible part of Abraham Lincoln’s face around his beard
- Draw Abraham Lincoln’s eyes, nose, mouth, and pink cheeks – glue onto the rounded edge piece of construction paper
- Cut out 1-2” half circles out of the white paper and tape onto sides of Abraham Lincoln’s beard
- Finally attach the initially cut black paper to about 3” above Abraham Lincoln’s face. Add 2” wide horizontal pice of paper to make the hat brim.
- Add a famous quote from Abraham Lincoln (free copywork or 5 famous quotes here)
Here is our finished project. It was a really fun President’ Day project for the kids and allowed them to learn more about Abraham Lincoln as they traced his famous quotes. This activity is perfect for Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade students.
