Beyond Fireworks: 12 Ways to Celebrate the 4th with Kids

To little ones, celebrating the 4th of July usually means one thing – fireworks! But, we know that by the time the sun goes down and the fireworks go up around 10:00 pm, they are exhausted and ready for bed. Here are 12 July 4th activities for your kids that don’t involve having cranky, overtired children on the 5th of July!

Have a sidewalk chalk party

What could be more of a 4th of July necessity than sidewalk chalk? This is great for those block parties where the kiddos have free reign in the street. Pick up a bucket of your favorite sidewalk chalk, or try your hand at making your own. Then watch as your sidewalk is transformed into a red, white, and blue color explosion.
