I've been trying to walk a bit every morning when I'm home and today's pictures are of things I see on my walk. The header picture in my blog is of our town square. I don't live but maybe a 20 minute walk from town so it's a nice walk and not too long.
Every year we try and do some fun things at the campsite as a family and when I saw this list of things to do I thought you might enjoy them too. We have some crafts planned and some activities too so hopefully I'll be sharing pictures of that in the next day or two or three.
Safe Summer Celebrations to keep the Fourth of July fun, festive and safe for families.
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.
