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 patriotic bike parade
Grab all the neighborhood kids and their bikes! Have everyone decorate their own bike at home and then meet for a parade or have a bike decorating party at your house (may we suggest the garage?). Think streamers, painted tin cans on string trailing behind bikes, balloons – anything goes!
Don’t forget to visit your local Red Tricycle Events Calendar to see what 4th of July activities are going on in your city!
