What to do when the kids are too young to stay up for the fireworks? Create some of your own...
-Check out the local 4th of July parade in your town; don't forget to dress them in their flag tees (available anywhere this time of the year) and bring their red, white and blue sunglasses from Target
-Make patriotic cupcakes and cookies like the ones shown above
-Decorate cut-up fruit with red, white and blue sprinkles and serve with flag toothpicks from Target
-Read Betsy Ross by Alexandra Wallner, a perfect read for kids
-Put them to sleep with red, white and blue nightlights--they'll be thrilled!
