My girls are super curious about the presidential election this year! They’ve heard lots of talk about voting and are asking great questions. To keep the conversation going, I’ve gathered some fun election day themed activity ideas!
Kids are curious and learning all about the world around them. One of my favorite ways to start conversations about different topics is with BOOKS!

How about a fun patriotic sensory bin!
This red, white, and blue themed bin is perfect for election day and simple to make! Just fill a bin with white rice and add any red, white, and blue loose parts you have. Some loose part examples are pom-poms, jewels, stars, popsicle sticks, etc. Then pair with a few cups and scoops for play!
Ready to set up your own ballot box?
I love this idea from Things to Share and Remember . For preschoolers the best way to learn is to dive in and this fun ballot box activity is simple to set up and sure to be a hit! I have our box prepped and ready! Can’t wait to see what we are voting on and to teach my girls more about the voting process!
