Election Day is tomorrow, November 3, are you exercising your right to vote? You can teach your little ones about the voting process with this fun activity. Tonight, we will have a little lesson about what freedom means and the right of every citizen to have a say in the democratic process. Then we will pull out some of our own personalized ballots and have each of the kids cast their own private (unless the smaller ones need a little help reading) vote for what they would like for breakfast on Tuesday morning. We will then tally the votes and serve them a breakfast based on the results. Even though this is something really small, I hope it will teach them a little bit about their right to help make choices and understand the importance of getting out to vote.
If you think this is something you would like to use in your home, click here for Word 2007 or here for a later version of Word, to download a printable copy of this ballot.

That is so cute! My daughter does a mock vote at school and I think it's a wonderful idea.
This is a fabulous idea! It sounds like something my mom would have done when we were little!

Love this idea! I might revise it so I can use it every day and not have to ask my child 20 times each morning what she'd like for breakfast before I get a coherent answer.
This is really such a brilliant idea! I should try this on some of my nieces!
We tried it today for breakfast. The kids thought it was so fun!! They asked if we could do it for dinner. I said as long they agreed on the same dinner it would be fine. I'm not going to make 4 different dinners :D
