What does your family do on the 4th of July?  When I was a kid we always went to the parade, I loved seeing the big floats, but our favorite part was getting the candy they threw out. ( I know that is the still the favorite for kids today as well)
When my dad was older he owned a Model-T Ford he would drive it in the parade with some of his grandkids. 

When my husband and I  lived at the farm we took our family  and attended the parade every year. Then we went back home and had a big BBQ  and lit off fireworks in our field. Those memories for any occasion you make with your family last a lifetime.

Now that we are older we attend the parade with 4 of our grandkids that live here and we usually BBQ afterwards. There are so many neighbors lighting off fireworks in our neighborhood we can stay home and enjoy all the explosions in a chair from our front yard.

It is important to educate your children on our country’s history, check out Liberty’s Kids, the popular kids’ TV series. It’s extremely interactive and lets kids explore each important historical date, person and event of the American Revolution.

Help your kids understand why we celebrate the Fourth of July. How all these men and women fought to keep our great land free.

How Fun are these Paper Rockets?! To make each rocket, roll scrapbooking paper into a tube and secure with glue.
For the nose cone, cut a slit to the center of a paper circle; overlap ends and adhere together using glue.
Glue a ribbon strip inside the rocket to resemble a fuse, and glue a long dowel inside the tube to support the rocket. Then put them in a bucket filled with sand. (Thanks BHG For sharing this!)
