We’re pretty removed from being ruled by a different country, but our independence is a REALLY BIG DEAL! Help your kiddos celebrate the day with a few activities that will keep them busy and celebrate America the beautiful!
1) Decorate bicycles for your own Fourth of July Bike Parade! If there are other kids in the neighborhood, this is a great way to get exercise and foster friendships. Provide red crepe paper, pom poms, construction paper, balloons and other items. **Note: before riding their decorated bikes, make sure an adult checks them for anything that would make riding dangerous. 2) Kids LOVE to paint! Supplies: red, white and blue paint and brushes. Put a tarp on the driveway, and provide cardboard boxes, flower pots, or other items to paint. Make sure kids have old clothes on, and let them go to town! Everything looks good with a little Americana paint! 3) Food Prep: It’s not always easy to have kiddos in the kitchen, but on the 4th, it might be a great time to have them stir the cupcake batter, roll the cookies, press down the Rice Krispie treats or even help “watch” the ice cream freezer for you! Food is center stage in most of our American celebrations, so train them young to shop, mix, set the timer, bake and eat!
