Politics can become ugly, I’ve seen so many people clashing over this years’ election and losing friendships over differences of opinion. However, I am a firm believer in the importance of involving our children in the diplomatic process. It’s an important lesson for kids and teens to learn so they stay involved in our political system as they grow older. So, what better way to get kids involved than to have an Election Day Party? An Election Day Party is a great way to teach kids the election process but also a great way to get voters excited to get out there and have their voice heard! Why? Because you can’t attend MY Election Day Party without an “I Voted!” sticker! Ha! So, check out some fun Election Day Party Ideas and Happy Voting!
You can’t have a successful party without treats and the treats I’m talking about are, of course, sweet treats!! OK, we did throw a couple of “healthier ones in there too. But lets first focus on the cookies!
Simply add Marshmallow Fluff between two Vanilla Wafer cookies and squeeze. Scrape off excess fluff because it will drip over the sides. Roll edges in blue icing and write your Presidential candidate with colored icing!
Oreo Vote Cookies
Melt white chocolate on stove. Be careful not to overly heart white chocolate, once the chocolate starts to melt remove from heat and continue to stir until white chocolate has melted. Dip and cover entire Oreo cookie in white chocolate. Let cool to harden. Write “Vote” using red and blue icing.
Patriotic Apple Slices
Delicious Red Apple (sliced)
White Chocolate (melted)
Melt white chocolate on stove. Be careful not to overly heart white chocolate, once the chocolate starts to melt remove from heat and continue to stir until white chocolate has melted. Dip half of apple slice in white chocolate and immediately cover with blue sprinkles. Cool to harden.
Not only are treats a must for an Election Day Party but so is voting! I downloaded these Kid-Friendly Election Ballots at Inspired In Style for my party! Fun voting ideas:
