I personally love fireworks. As my girls have gotten older and used to the loud noise, they’ve started enjoying fireworks, too. In anticipation of the Fourth of July, we’ve been doing some fireworks activities. Here is a collection of some of our favorites around the web. You’ll find sensory play ideas, fireworks arts and crafts, and even some creative firework-inspired foods.
