OFF THE DIRECTOR'S DESK

4th july cookout

The Fourth of July is our country’s birthday and your child will be excited to celebrate Independence Day.  There are many activities for families with young children such as parades, firework displays, cook-outs and dinners with family and friends. Including your children in preparing for celebrations help them feel they have an important role in making the event special.  Let them help make decorations for the Fourth of July cookout or picnic, let them prepare a dessert or snack, encourage them to organize or create a game, etc.

If you go to the Red, White & Tunes 4th of July Celebration at Barron Park to watch the fireworks display, don't forget to bring earplugs or noise-canceling head- phones your child can wear during the display.  Loud noises may frighten a young child.  To learn more about fireworks safety visit http://bit.ly/1TC07KG.  Have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
