Kid Friendly Fun This Fourth of July

SAFE SUMMER CELEBRATIONS

Fireworks can be dangerous and the last thing a parent wants to do this Fourth of July is put their child’s health in danger. As part of its new children’s eye health program, Star Pupils, Prevent Blindness America offers the Safe Summer Celebrations guide free to parents that offers tips on how to keep the Fourth of July fun, festive and safe.

Some suggestions are:

  • After the sun goes down, wrap flashlights in colored cellophane to provide fun shades of light.
  • Purchase non-toxic glo-sticks, glo-ropes and glo-jewelry that can
    safely light the night for kids.
  • Create your own noisemakers by banging wooden spoons on pots and pans.
  • Search your house for horns, whistles and bells and other items to create a marching band.
  • Make your own firecracker sounds by popping bubble wrap.
  • Using yarn, craft sticks, paint and construction paper, families can make the United States flag.
  • Make 4th of July rockets by using paper towel rolls, paint, streamers and paper cement.
  • Let kids create in the kitchen by making fun desserts using blueberries, strawberries and whipping cream for star-spangled treats.
  • Have children design and decorate their own t-shirts and hats using glow in the dark paints. Add puffy paints and glitter to make them sparkle.
  • Use hypoallergenic face paint or make-up to make designs on your child’s face. Adults should apply the face paint and remove it with cold cream or eye make-up remover instead of soap. Follow product guidelines about applying product directly around the eyes.
