On July 4th of 1776 (237 years ago) United States was declared Independent from the Kingdom of Great Britain, Thomas Jefferson was in charge or writing the Declaration of Independence. Today, we are celebrating that day when we ceased being British to become Americans.
What are your plans for today’s celebration? Have you thought about teaching your kids the history of Independence Day? That could be a good way to start. Here are some tips on how you can teach them the importance of our National Day
- Share with them why and when United States was declared independent from Great Britain.
- Help them to create a craft that represents any Patriotic Icon, for example, US Flag, Stars, Liberty Crown, etc.
- Read the Declaration of Independence to them and sing the National Anthem together.
- Take them to a historical landmark close to your location.
- Try making patriotic recipes, a dessert, or a quick meal so they can help you and then eat it together.
- When getting ready to go out, dress them for this special occasion, if you got any of our Americana Styles, we assure you that they will look adorable.
- Take them to enjoy the fireworks: although they might not begin early, your kids will have a lot of fun watching them.
