Activity: Kids Speak
Here at the library, we don’t forget that kids have important things to say too. Boys and girls who had something to say, stood behind the podium and said it!

Activity: Presidents Matching
The kids were each given a picture of a past U.S. President that they needed to find the match for. It wasn’t as easy as it sounds – lots of powder wigs!
Activity: Kids Vote
By placing either a picture of President Obama or Governor Romney in the voting box, the kids decided who they would vote for President. And the kids’ winner was…Barack Obama!
Craft: I Voted Stickers
The kids colored in I Voted stickers.
