Independence Day is all about celebrating our country’s freedom and while many celebrations include parades and barbecues before the night culminates with brilliant fireworks displays, the holiday isn’t so much fun for those who dislike the loud booms, bright flashes, or are a bit scared of the crowds and the dark when everything ends. This Fourth of July plan a family friendly celebration with a healthy dose of red, white, and blue that will make your kids feel like they can enjoy the fun without being scared.
Traveling over the holiday weekend?
Get a hotel room on a high floor with a view of the city’s fireworks. This allows young family members to watch from the comfort of the hotel room while older ones head out with a parent to see them in person. This helps the whole family have fun in a way where everyone feels comfortable and no one misses out on the dazzling fireworks display.
Terrified by the loud noises that come with fireworks?
Put on your own light show. Since loud booms are not only scary but they can also be hard on little ears, having a basket of Glow Sticks on hand can provide alternate evening fun. These versatile devices from Rayovac feature 5 modes (flashlight, flashlight and wand, flashlight and flashing wand, glowing wand, and flashing wand) that run on USA made button cell alkaline batteries and are perfect for putting on a light show of your own.
Love the fireworks but afraid of the dark when they end?
Some kids have a hard time in crowds, especially when it’s dark. Bring along a kid-sized flashlight to help them feel more at ease! We like the super-bright light from LED flashlights and have two that came in the LED Flashlight Twin Pack. Affordably priced at $11.99, these fit perfectly in the hands of kids, are lightweight, and quite affordable if one happens to get lost en route. The included AAA alkaline batteries are made by Rayovac in the United States to power these LED flashlights and provide 42 hours of light. They’re a household favorite over here throughout the year!
Staying at home?
Play flashlight tag! Gather up the flashlights in the house or encourage guests to bring their own for a giant game of flashlight tag as the sun goes down. It’s a fun game for all ages that encourages physical activity plus play that involves flashlights is always more fun!
Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
