Fun and Safe 4th of July Activities for Kids

Fun and Safe 4th of July Activities for Kids – As Seen on FOX Good Day Chicago

This morning I made a visit to the set of FOX’s Good Day Chicago to share five fun (and safe!) 4th of July Activities for Kids. While fireworks are fun to watch, let’s leave them to the professionals and never let the children handle them or get too close. If you are having or attending a 4th of July party or BBQ, consider these five ideas to keep the little ones involved and busy while celebrating the holiday safely.
