Hello, everyone! Happy Election Day to you all! My family and I are very excited about this time of year and today most especially! My daughter got upset yesterday when she thought I was going to turn off the news because she just wanted to hear as much as she could about the elections! It probably helped that when our ballots came in the mail this year, I let my two youngest help me fill in the candidates that we are voting for. They feel invested and interested which is what I'd like to teach them about elections in America! To help all my children (and my nephew who is now living with us!) understand the importance of voting and our democracy, I have a few other plans for tonight.
First of all:
I found a map that the children can color red or blue as the exit polls come in and we can tally the electoral votes.
Another thing is to have a dinner with red and blue themes:
Drinks of red, white and blue.
I have some food planned but no pictures yet! I'll post them when I do.
Don't forget to get out and vote! Have a fantastic day!
