Presidents’ Day Printable Game
A few years back, I spoke to Deanne over at Printable Games A to Z about the dearth of printable President’s day games. (we are so missing her site!) Here’s what she suggests:
Personalize a Customizable Printable Bingo Card with the names of different presidents:
1. George Washington 2. John Adams 3. Thomas Jefferson 4. James Madison 5. James Monroe 6. John Quincy Adams 7. Andrew Jackson 8. Martin Van Buren 9. William Henry Harrison 10. John Tyler 11. James K. Polk 12. Zachary Taylor 13. Millard Fillmore 14. Franklin Pierce 15. James Buchanan 16. Abraham Lincoln 17. Andrew Johnson 18. Ulysses S. Grant 19. Rutherford B. Hayes 20. James Garfield 21. Chester A. Arthur 22. Grover Cleveland 23. Benjamin Harrison 24. Grover Cleveland 25. William McKinley 26. Theodore Roosevelt 27. William Howard Taft 28. Woodrow Wilson 29. Warren G. Harding 30. Calvin Coolidge 31. Herbert Hoover 32. Franklin D. Roosevelt 33. Harry S. Truman 34. Dwight D. Eisenhower 35. John F. Kennedy 36. Lyndon B. Johnson 37. Richard M. Nixon 38. Gerald R. Ford 39. James Carter 40. Ronald Reagan 41. George H. W. Bush 42. William J. Clinton 43. George W. Bush 44. Barack Obama 45. Donald Trump
We like the idea! And if you are really into Presidential trivia, rather than calling out the Presidents' names you can give unique hints like “he was the 31st President” (Hoover) or “he was elected for two nonconsecutive terms.” (Cleveland) Too bad none of the hints can yet refer to a “she”!

Designate President's Day as a day of reflection, a day of leadership development and team building!
Looking for innovative ways to inspire your team without investing in a major team building initiative? President's Day is the perfect day to incorporate reflection, leadership exercises, and inspirational activities into the workday’s normal routine. If you are among the lucky ones who actually get this national holiday off, consider choosing another day to achieve the same results. Model your next “Great Leaders Day” after Smith College’s Mountain Day where every year the college president chooses a beautiful fall day and announces a holiday day off to re-invigorate the soul by ringing the college bells.
