Celebrating President's Day at Your Apartment

Presidents at Mount Rushmore

Did you know that President’s Day always falls on the third Monday of February? In today’s Liv Northgate Blog, we are providing a few suggestions for different ways that you can celebrate in your apartment here in Gilbert, AZ. Read on to get some ideas on how you can be a part of this patriotic holiday.

Red, White and Blue Popcorn

This patriotic snack is perfect for enjoying while staying in and watching a patriotic movie such as Independence Day, The Patriot, or Pearl Harbor. Rekindle your appreciation for living in the U.S. by watching one of these great films concerning the fight for freedom.

Build a Mini Log Cabin

This fun idea from Martha Stewart Living is also edible! Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States was born in a one room log cabin in Kentucky. A National Park now exists at the Sinking Springs Farm where Lincoln spent the first few years of his life.

Dress up as a President

Dress up as your favorite U.S. president. These kids costumes from Amazon are pretty cool, but you don’t have to buy a costume. Just head to your favorite local Gilbert, AZ thrift store to get all the props and clothing you will need.

Patriotic Bingo

These patriotic printable bingo cards from Makoodle were originally made to be played on the 4th of July, but we think they also would be the perfect activity to play on Presidents’ Day as well! Use red, white, and blue M&Ms or buttons as spot markers.

Presidential Trivia

Take this fun quiz from World History Project to test your knowledge about the past and present leaders of this great nation. It may take you by surprise how many of these facts you didn’t already know!
