5 Things You Need for a 4th of July Kid's Party

The 4th of July is such a fun holiday. Everyone always talks about fireworks and hamburgers but there's so much more you can do for the 4th, even without fireworks. As usual, I love to make it extra special for my kids. Here's everything you need to make the 4th of July extra special for your littles.
1. Poppers and Sparklers: Here in FL, those big fancy fireworks aren't sold here so we can only have the kind that stay on the ground and spray out. As fun as that sounds, they can be dangerous and are somewhat anticlimactic, in my opinion. So we actually just skip them altogether. We buy sparklers {which we are very careful with, with the kids} and poppers. Oh how they love the poppers! This year, I also picked up some light up stars wands and necklaces from Party City that they're going to love.

2. Outdoor Fun: We stocked up on red, white, and blue water balloons, bubbles, and this rainbow sprinkler {which is way cheaper than the ones I saw at Target and Pottery Barn Kids}. That alone can keep the kids busy for quite a while.
3. Accessorize: Kids love the holidays and a really fun, easy way to celebrate is to buy inexpensive sunglasses, earrings, necklaces, t-shirts, anything festive! I try not to buy clothes that actually say 4th of July on them and instead opt for outfits in the holiday colors that can be worn again like these bathing suits. 

4. M&M Cookies: You can never go wrong with a fun, easy, festive cookie recipe. We made this recipe with red, white, and blue M&Ms. We skipped the chocolate chips and doubled up on M&Ms. The kids {and adults} loved them!
5. Decorate: You don't have to go crazy here, all we did was print out a backdrop from our Cue the Confetti membership, added a few paper stars and confetti and you've got yourself a party. You can find 4th of July plates just about anywhere but if you don't see anything you like, just grab some basics in red, white, and blue, easy peasy. 

That's all you need to make the 4th of July, or any holiday for that matter, fun for the kids. Anything that feels like a fun, festive party, even if it's nothing big, will totally make their day!
