We camp on the 4th of July in an area where fireworks are not allowed so we came up with this idea. Buy red, white and blue, (or whatever colors you choose) glowsticks, necklaces, etc. at your local 99 cent store. On the 4th, snap your glow sticks and play games of throwing them back and forth, or have contests to see how high someone can throw them in the air. We get creative every year we play with glowsticks on the 4th. It's so fun.

This is great. We did this when our 4 year old twin granddaughters lived with us. Where we live our back yard is TOTALLY dark at nite, no light whatsoever. Not even from the moon because of tree cover. We didn't feel safe giving them sparklers to play with on the 4th (or any other nite), so we stocked up on glow sticks and glow toys at the dollar store. They had a ball out there.

Another plus for them was they were able to play outside (the yard is fenced and the dogs were out there with them) after dark without Grandma and Grandpa being "under foot". I could watch them from the window and the glow toys lit them up just enough for me to see them and for them to see each other and be safe. Made them feel like "big kids" and it was an extra special treat for when they were good that day.

Parents beware! Teens and tweens love fireworks, but their brains don't comprehend the consequences of their actions. Always have an adult to supervise any fireworks. Kids can think up some crazy things!

Definitely. Not to rain on anyone's parade, but I think a lot of people don't appreciate that fireworks are in fact explosives! I also have had experiences of fireworks being tossed for fun into a crowd. And just a few years ago a rocket we were setting off fell over, shooting it straight for us and making us run for cover from the shower of sparks. If it had hit any of us we could've been seriously hurt. Fireworks are beautiful and fun, but they need to be handled with care.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July! God bless.

Use kids Play-doh and containers to put sparklers in. They stick in the Play-doh easily and it holds them up. This is good if you want to light them all at once or if a child is scared to hold theirs.

Fireworks and celebrations go together, especially during the Fourth of July. But fireworks can be dangerous, causing serious burn and eye injuries.

What is the minimum legal distance that someone should be located away from an assembly of 75 people under a tent if he is to launch large fireworks overhead?
