The Fourth of July is just about here and what is a holiday with kiddos without themed activities like 4th of July activities for toddlers?
Celebrating 4th of july with your toddlers
I don’t go too hard with the holidays in regard to my twins and what we do to celebrate. I am a much more laid back kind of mama. But something I do love putting together are fun activities for the littles to do, usually in theme of whatever event is going on.
And right now that is the upcoming fourth of july holiday!
I know this year so far has just been a mess, but what has been keeping me sane is a break in the middle of the day to snuggle, craft, draw, read. Really anything to get me through the hump of the day!
4th of july activities for toddlers
With that, let’s talk about 4th of July activities for toddlers. I have four for you here today, and honestly these are all things that could easily be adjusted for any holiday & any time of year!
Red, white and blue Sensory Jars
This is an idea I put together last year, but totally lacked on posting and got up after the holiday. This year- it is here to shine!
Patriotic RWB Sun catchers
I’ve written about my easy DIY sun catchers before, you can read the full how-to here. But for this activity, I stuck to red & blue bits of paper for my toddlers to place on the contact paper as they wanted before sticking another layer of contact paper on top & cutting out shapes for the sun catchers!
Stars and Stripes Jello
This one works for a fun edible activity! It doesn’t really last long. But it does serve as a warm weather snack! I made up some blue and red jello, brought it out to the patio table, and let the kids have at it with star cookie cutters and their little hands! This would be great for the younger toddlers/babies as well as a solid sensory activity.
Dish Brush Firework Painting
The final activity I have to share is pretty simple & made for an entire HOURS worth of fun for my tots. So, highly recommend!!
All I did was put together some of my edible finger paint in red & blue, plopped it on plates for each of the tots, and gave them circular dish brushes. The prints were supposed to resemble fireworks, however, I think the yogurt in the finger paint made the consistency a bit too thick for that. Anyways, they still had a blast painting the card stock & whole patio table!
Which of these activities do you think you’ll try out first? I honestly loved every single one of these 4th of July activities for toddlers and they’ve become regular activities in my house!
If you end up putting together any of these ideas, I’d love for you to tag me on Instagram @twinsandcoffeepnw!
