I had a few spare minutes today and took time to catch up on my Internet reading of grandmother sites. I especially like this article by Susan Adcox Teaching Patriotism on the Fourth of July, or Any Day.
Even if it might be a tad too late to incorporate some of her suggestions today, you can tuck them away for a future date.
So, check it out!
Last week, I was out of town to a conference for work. I should have been organized and should have written up ideas of 4th of July activities that you can do with your grandchildren before I left. Key word phrase there is “should have.” Alas, I wasn’t that on top of things. Sigh.
So, in the event that you aren’t ready for the big day tomorrow, here are some links to previous posts of ideas of what you can do to have a fun time with the grandkids as you celebrate the founding of our nation.
Please note the titles for these posts. Aren’t the exceptionally clever and original?
Have a safe and happy 4th of July — and PLEASE be extremely cautious with fireworks. There are way too many fires in my state (and surrounding states).
Isn’t it amazing how many holiday ideas you can find on the Internet? (Isn’t it amazing how much time I can
waste spend searching for ideas?) What drab lives we lived before the Internet came along.
Here’s round three of even more 4th of July ideas of activities you can do with your grandchildren.
When you are finished making your crafts, make this yummy All American Dessert. Your grandchildren will gobble it down in one sitting. (Much to their mother’s dismay!) Word on the street has it that you might want to use more Cool Whip than the recipe calls for.
The 4th of July.
You can never have too many ideas of things to do and things to make that are patriotic. (I was patriotic LONG before it was cool or in to be patriotic!)
And, there isn’t anything more fun than to make patriotic things with your grandchildren.
Here is a list that includes printable and craft activities. There are ideas for grandchildren of all ages.
