4th of July fun!!

July 1, 2010 at 6:53 AM 8 comments

Just a few more days before the 4th of July and I am looking forward to a fun weekend of family and friends! Earlier this month, I blogged about this much anticipated weekend and I am beyond thrilled that it’s almost here!

For this weekend, I am in charge of the Educational Kids Crafts/Lessons and these kiddos are going to have a great time learning all about the 4th of July while having some fun in the process.  I will be posting pictures of the kiddos creating their Star Spangled Wavers , participating while I read Biscuit’s Fourth of July, and learning their kid-friendly 4th of July facts!

You really can create learning opportunities for your children anytime/anywhere!  All you need is a few minutes of planning time to make it happen!

Happy Learning!

    The wavers are a very cute alternative to sparklers. I’m not too comfortable with the kids & fireworks yet 🙂

      I completely agree with you! Our getaway this weekend included 5 kiddos under the age of 3!! The wavers were a perfect replacement for fireworks for us!
