Host a Fourth of July Playdate 

We invited our friends over to create these patriotric snacks for a 4th of July Playdate.  They were a big hit!  For the playdate we started off with a few patriotic books about America.  We had the kids made a few patriotic crafts including a handprint flag. Then we went out side to enjoy our flag craft and bubbles around the America Flag to celebrate America's Birthday.  When we were all done we came in and made our Flag Snacks to end our Patriotic celebration.   

Here are a few ideas for ways to celebrate the 4th of July with Kids...
