Presidents' Day activities for kids

Kids may learn something about Obama, Lincoln and other presidents during these Presidents' Day activities. But odds are they'll just have a fun day off from school

Obama and Lincoln have roots in Illinois, but let's face it: Your kids are more preoccupied with the delight of another Monday off from school than our state's brushes with history. It's a great day to check out one of the best Chicago museums with your kids for free (consult our list of free museum days), but if your mean employer is making you go to work that day, there are full-day options for working parents, too. Check out our picks for the top Presidents' Day activities to play, learn and explore.
