We found this cute George Washington printable project display holder at Squish Preschool Ideas. I think all the details are at Scholastics.com: Abraham Lincoln Printable.
Though, it was designed to highlight a paper, I think it would make a good president paper bag puppet.

Another popular question... Who would win in a fight between George Washington and Abe Lincoln?
Easy. As a past military hero and soldier, George is the clear choice. Honest Abe wouldn't fight unless it was a battle of wits and then he has our vote, but both men were very intelligent in their own right.
Grab a journal and write about who you think would win and list reasons why.
