Hi Mamma! If you’re like me you’re always looking for fun ways to “play” with your kids. I hate feeling like the best I’ve got is to watch TV all day, which actually ends up making no one happy by bedtime. I try to tie our crafts and activities into holidays or upcoming events. I’ve rounded up some of the most awesome fourth of July activities for toddlers for your viewing pleasure.
Since I’m also a Pinterest stalker, I’m linking to some other roundup posts for fourth of July activities for toddlers and preschoolers. You can get all the info you want, right from this page! If you’re an awesome crafter already – feel free to leave me your favorite fourth of July kids activities in the comments below.

Here are some of the crafts I’d recommend you do with a younger toddler. While my 3.5 year old loves wands and crowns, those crafts might be too complicated and more easily broken by an 18-24 month old.
The crafts below are appropriate for older toddlers and preschoolers, as well.
