Make your own Lincoln Hat for Presidents Day
Make your own stove-pipe hat - just like Abraham Lincoln!
In honor of President’s Day, President Lincoln’s Cottage is offering an opportunity for children and their families to answer the question, “What do you do with a chance?”
As President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln took many chances in the hopes of unifying the country. At times, Lincoln felt his ideas were just out of his reach and worried that he might fail. With some courage and support, he developed his brave ideas by taking notes and keeping them safe in his signature stovepipe hat.
Join us for an interactive program (45 minutes) on taking chances and create your own Lincoln hat to hold your brave ideas.
Program lasts 45 minutes
Group reading of What Do You Do with a Chance? Written by Kobi Yamada and illustrated by Mae Besom
