Countdown to the Fourth

  1. Paint your toes like flags...and your face too, while you're at it.
  2. Make selzter rockets.
  3. Plan a future trip to Washington D.C. for their parade and fireworks. There's nothing like it.
  4. Check out the top fireworks in the U.S. and find fireworks in your area.
  5. If you can't make it to your local fireworks, catch the Boston POPS Fireworks Spectacular at 10PM on CBS. I just love how the city's church bells chime in unison during the "1812 Overture."
  6. Read the Declaration of Independence and other historic documents.
  7. Teach your kids the Pledge of Allegiance with this free printable.
  8. Make America a birthday cake. She'll be 231 years old!
  9. Or, for those of you who can eat it, check out this beautiful Patriotic Cookie Pizza.
  10. Make some can holders and some easy sand candles for your table.
  11. Let your kids make a red, white, and blue paper chain.
  12. Print and make a patriotic mini book.
  13. And don't miss the Presidential Prayer Team for Kids website.
