I can’t even believe that we are discussing July 4th plans. July 4th is such a great time for our country. A time to celebrate freedom with family and friends.
Our July 4th plans are a little different now that we have kids. We need to make sure our plans are family-friendly. Here is a list of 4th of July activities with toddlers.
4th of July Activities
Go swimming– Oliver is currently learning how to swim. So, anytime he can get in a pool is a great time. Swimming is a good way to stay cool on a hot July summer day.
Picnic– Family picnics or get-togethers are a must during the 4th of July. I am sure you all have had a hamburger or hot dog while watching some fireworks. Cooking on the grill goes hand in hand with the holiday.
Water balloons– Toddlers enjoy balloons. They also like to fill said balloons with water and throw them at each other. Another great way to stay cool during the hot month.
Slip and Slide– Toddlers love slides. So, adding some water and creating a slip and slide is a fun activity for toddlers.
Sparklers– Sparklers are a neat way to light up the night sky. This activity may have to be something a toddler witnesses from a distance.
Have a popsicle– After eating hot dogs and hamburgers, a popsicle is a nice little treat. Plus they make red, white, and blue ones for this patriotic day.
Campfire and s’mores– Another treat after hamburgers and hotdogs is s’mores. Sitting around a fire and just spending time together.
Go see fireworks– Fireworks are a must for the 4th of July. Although, a couple of years were rough because Oliver did not like the noise. He now understands that it comes from the fireworks.

My 1.5-year-old just LOVES the water and the pool!! SO I will probably bring him in the pool for a little bit!
My boys were able to go swimming and had a blast. We also discovered the puddle jumper and Oliver was able to swim with it on.
These are some great ideas for toddlers! We always love to have s’mores.
S’mores are a must! Thank you.
I know what you’re saying. I can’t believe either that half of 2020 is gone already, although I’m not sorry to see it go.
Great activities. My toddler absolutely loves everything to do with water.
Same here! It has been a crazy year. Thank you.
Such fun ideas. I should try some of these with my grandbaby.
Aww grandbaby time, our kiddos love to spend time with their grandparents.
These activity ideas are really amazing and very interesting to do with kids..am glad you shared all of these with us..s’mores are mine fav of all..and these all of activities sounds much useful and helpful indeed….🙂
S’mores are the best. We enjoy them when we go camping.
I STILL love water balloons! Maybe I should get some sparklers this year for fun; I’ll see if they’re available at a local grocery store. Thanks for these ideas!
I love water balloons also, especially on a hot summer day.
I’m not in the US, so I didn’t realise there were specific activities associated with the 4th of July.
Oh yea! Fireworks are the big one.
All these are so fun and great for most age groups. I’m so afraid of the firecrackers, I’ve never fancy buying them but I enjoy watching them from a far. Lol
Yea we didn’t get to see them because the kiddos did not like the loud noise they made. They both started crying so hopefully, we can see them next year.
