Abe Lincoln Mask for Kids

Yes, Abe Lincoln can come back to life!

...25 of them!  How fun is this?  You decide.

I like for kids to make Abe Lincoln masks, to launch or culminate Presidents’ Day.  Once they know more about Lincoln, it’s charming to take on his persona. 

My favorite Lincoln book, hands down, is Just Like Abraham Lincoln, by Bernard Waber.

Mr. Potts lives next door.  He looks—and acts—just like Lincoln.  He’s kind, fun, thoughtful, generous, nature-loving, story-telling…just like Abraham Lincoln.  And at the end of the story, he’s moving away.

I admit I always get a little lump in my throat at the end.  And then I get a hearty laugh when I see my class all in Abe Lincoln masks.  It’s the cure for—well, for almost anything.
