5 activities for the 4th that are not fireworks!

June 29, 2020

 

The 4th of July is rapidly approaching! This summer’s 4th of July celebrations will look different than previous years due to social distancing guidelines. Many firework shows have been cancelled or postponed, and many children with sensory processing differences have overall difficulties attending firework shows. There are still many fun and safe activities to do to celebrate this summer holiday! 

 

The following activities are a few enjoyable alternatives:

 

  • Arts and Crafts

    • There is a wide variety of table-top crafts available to do indoors and outdoors that are 4th of July themed. They are fun, creative activities for kids allowing them to also work on certain developmental skills! Pinterest and this site has great options: https://www.therealisticmama.com/4th-of-july-crafts-for-kids/

 

  • Bubbles

    • Kids love popping and blowing bubbles! There are many shapes, sizes, and wands available for kids all ages. This activity can keep a young one busy and happy for a long time! 

 

  • Water Play

    • On a hot day, water play can bring much joy to kids! Some water activities might include making water balloons, using spray bottles, setting up a water table with red/white/blue toys, or even setting up your backyard as an “water park” with sprinklers and hoses! Water play is incredibly fun for all ages!

 

  • Red, White, and Blue Slime 

    • Playing with slime is a fun sensory activity! It is fun for kids to be apart of the process and sequence the steps in making a fun science project. Slime is fun to squish and explore with your hands, and kids can even hide 4th of July stars inside! Pinterest and this site have great recipes: https://littlebinsforlittlehands.com/4th-of-july-slime-recipe/

 

  • 4th of July sensory bin

    • Sensory bins allow children to explore, create, and learn while engaging their senses! A sensory bin can be filled with a large variety of red, white, and blue materials including: rice, shredded paper, water beads, sand, flour, beans, and much more! Kids can explore the materials using their hands and can even use different tools around the house to expand their exploration. 

 

The 4th of July is a summer holiday that should be enjoyable for all, even without fireworks! These many alternative activities are a great way to ensure everyone is staying safe, having fun, and still celebrating this summer holiday!
