The Fourth of July is a popular day for kids because of all the excitement that comes with it, mostly from the fireworks and pool parties. However, there is a lot more to this wonderful holiday than just watching the fireworks show at the end of the night, which is why we would like to share with you four ways to celebrate family, community and all things that make our country so great with your kids this year!
1. Patriotic Treats
An easy way to show off your patriotic pride with the kids this year is by baking some treats together! Cake pops are delicious and fun to decorate. Have your kids spread red, white and blue frosting over each one and display them on the counter or at the block party in the shape of the American flag. You can also do something similar with fruit skewers, which is a healthy alternative!
2. Community Bike Parade
Having a bike parade is a great way to get the whole community involved. Gather all the neighborhood kids and have each one decorate their own bikes. Get creative by adding streamers, painted tin cans, balloons – any decoration that is red, white and blue! They’ll love getting to ride around the community and showing off their patriotic creation.
3. Decorating The House
Decorating their bikes isn’t all that the kids can decorate. Decorate your house and your yard from top to bottom in the best three colors there are: red, white and blue! Your kids will love helping you out and getting to put their own special touch on the place.
4. Give Back To Our Troops
While the Fourth of July is a time for celebration, it’s also the perfect time to teach your kids about the men and women who are currently serving in order to make our country a better place. Putting together a care package with items like toiletries, food and even something as little as a hand written card are all amazing ways to show your support and appreciation.
With every year, firework shows continue to get bigger, louder and brighter and lets face it, it’s most kids favorite part of the holiday. But that’s not all our Nation’s Independence Day is about. We would love to hear what your celebration plans are for this year. Send us a tweet on the Bozman Farms Twitter page today!
