Election Party

Once every four years, we have the opportunity to change the course of our country and vote in a new leader who will grow us a society. Regardless of your political views, this is an opportunity that our forefathers (and mothers!) believed was bestowed to us as members of a free democracy. Let’s celebrate this historical milestone with an election party.

Really embrace the all-American theme and our culture.

DIY

DIYing is always a great way to take a break from your normal day-to-day and get the kids involved. Decorate with your Fourth of July d├ęcor and create a fun banner. You can easily print the donkey and elephant images and have your kids draw them.

If you have a Cricut, you can make a custom political shirt to share your swag. I took it a step further and made a beer koozie.

You can also create “I Voted” ribbons out of construction paper – this will help ease the sadness of not receiving a sticker if you vote by mail.

Activities

Here are a few suggestions to keep your kids (or yourself) engaged during the long election night.
