Independence Day Summer Learning: Try These 4 Fun & Educational Ideas With Your Kids During the July 4th Weekend

The 4th of July typically means parades, cookouts and plenty of time with family. But this Independence Day is a different, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. This year, July 4th can be a wonderful time for some fun opportunities for summer learning with your kids. Here are a few of my favorite activities for the holiday weekend:

1. Explore the “how” of fireworks and sparklers – and fire safety! Encourage your kids to research and teach an Independence Day history lesson.

2. Discuss water safety before hitting the beach or pool.

3. Make well-balanced, healthy dishes for a family cookout.

4. Identify different band instruments and patriotic songs and create your own 4th of July parade.
