Election Day is November 8th. Many children across the nation will be home from school while their schools are turned polling places. Here in Georgia, we have school on Election Day as voting happens in libraries, churches, and other venues. Election Day is an excellent day to teach children all about voting and to create some Election Day Crafts They can make a Ballot Box out of an empty food box (cereal, stuffing, you get the point). Use this Official Voter Registration for Kids pdf to register everyone in the family. Then tuck these id cards into a scrapbook or scan them and create a family yearbook to preserve them forever.
To create a ballot box cut a square out of one of the sides of your empty box. Cover the box with paper (and decorations). Cover the square that you cute from the box and tape it behind the box. Write the word VOTE so it is clear that this box will collect voting ballots.
