Packing picnics, playing outside and watching fireworks — the Fourth of July is a perfect holiday for children. Get your whole family in on the fun with these simple ways to celebrate.
Make Patriotic Headbands
Get your children into the holiday spirit by making these patriotic headbands they can wear for the entire day. Add in some creativity by encouraging each child to decorate their own headband, or to decorate one for you!

Sparklers can be fun for adults but aren’t safe for children. Instead, make these easy paper sparklers. You can save paper by using the leftover construction paper from your headbands.
