35 Patriotic 4th of July Kid Crafts & Activities

Here are more than 35 patriotic 4th of July kid crafts and activities for your kids to get them excited and participating in the holiday.

The 4th of July is one of my all-time favorite holidays, second only to Christmas.

To me, the 4th of July is about celebrating family, friends, summer and our American community.

Sure we get glitzy fireworks at the end of the day, but really it’s about the basics on the 4th — hometown parades, corn on the cob, gatherings with friends and of course activities for the kids.

Tell me which activity you might be doing this holiday season!
