The Fourth of July may be that big-bash summer holiday you've been looking forward to all year long, but have you really thought about how you're going to celebrate? Sparklers were the big hit back in our day, but we all know what happens when you mix small hands and fire ... big disasters. No one wants to make a run for the ER on July 4, so here's a better idea (or four).
Beyond firework-watching on the porch and eating a hamburger or two, we've come up with a fun-filled list of ways to make America's birthday truly great.
From crafts to games to food and more, we've got your star-spangled festivities covered:
In the days leading up to Fourth of July, get crafty with your kids. These Fourth of July crafts are easy to make and plenty of fun. If you are hosting a Fourth of July get-together, you can also set up a craft table and have all the kids make crafts during the party.
Invite all your neighbors and friends over to spend the afternoon having fun in the sun before the fireworks begin. From water balloon dodgeball to Pin the Hat on Uncle Sam, all the kids (and adults too) will love these Fourth of July party games.
