Fireworks, parades, flags, cook-outs, family, and friends. I love the 4th of July!!
Growing up, my family always had a huge cookout with other families and then we would all go watch our town’s fireworks display. Back in the day, the big treat for the young kids was sparklers, while the older kids shot bottle rockets and the occasional roman candle. So much fun!! But….
What were our parents thinking???
We all, remarkably, made it through childhood with all our fingers and minimal sparkler scarring, but thinking about it now as a parent makes me cringe.
I still love Fourth of July. We still have cook-outs and go see fireworks. However, I try to find safer activities for the kids, but ones that they will remember as fondly as I do those darn sparklers. In my search for fun stuff this year, I ran across a bunch of fourth Of July STEM activities! Perfect!
Here are my top 10…..
