Do you have your Fourth of July plans in place yet? I do not. I have no idea what we’re doing except that we will be watching fireworks at some point, somewhere!
I’m always a little nervous about the Fourth of July because my husband wants to set off like a million fireworks, despite the fact that we live in a congested area, and practically on top of our neighbors. He also thinks that it’s okay for our little kids (ages 2 and 4) to use sparklers and those things you throw on the ground that snap, crackle and pop (no – not Rice Krispies . . . those weird smoke things).
Anyway, I can barely light a candle without freaking out, so I am not into my kids playing with sparklers and all that jazz. So . . . I made them some safe “firework wands” that GLOW IN THE DARK (allegedly . . . this is according to the label on the bottle of paint I used . . . we haven’t tried them in the dark yet)! Perfect for use during fireworks displays!
