Happy Presidents Day

Presidents Day is always on the third monday of February. This year the date falls on February 16th. President's day combines both George Washington's and Abe Lincoln's birthday and was established in 1968 when it was decided to change several federal holidays. The idea was to establish this law in 1971 so that all would fall on a monday and create a three day weekend. Presidents day was created to pay honor to all the men who have served as president.

Honor the Presidents of our country with a patriotic parfait.  Pick up strawberry jello, blueberry and cool whip at the grocery store. And celebrate the Presidents with your kids.  Have a prize for the kid that knows the most about our countries great leaders.

Prep Time:
 10 minutes
Chill Time: 6 hours


1  4-oz. package red, flavored instant gelatin (such as cherry or strawberry Jello)
40  blueberries
1 tub of cool whip
Make Jello as directed, chill for at least 4 hours.  Spoon 1/4 cup Jello into each glass. Then spoon in 1/4 cup cool whip over Jello and smooth tops. Slowly spoon 1/4 cup Jello over cool whip in each cup (you will use up Jello) and chill until firm, 2 hour.  Top with final layer of cool whip. Divide blueberries among parfaits and serve.
