4th of July is right around the corner! This day is such a fun holiday. Families gather together for barbecues, parades, and pool parties. Kids enjoy playing outside all day and experiencing sparklers in the evening. Americans consume more hot dogs than any other day in the year, and about $1 billion dollars are spent on fireworks.
Amidst all the patriotic festivities, sometimes it’s easy to forget the reason we are celebrating in the first place. If it weren’t for the 56 people who signed the Declaration of Independence, declaring America’s freedom, we wouldn’t get to partake in any of these celebrations.
Before the holiday next week, share these fun facts about the 4th of July with your kids to remind them why we celebrate!
We hope that this list sparked some great conversation between you and your kiddos, and maybe you even learned a new thing or two! Happy Independence Day!
