4th of July has always been a favorite holiday of mine! Maybe it’s because we have always spent it on Cape Cod watching beautiful fireworks over the beach, checking out the parades each day and licking ice cream cones every night! Or maybe it’s because we love this country. All of these things, we want to pass down to our son. There are so many fun ways to include sensory play for any patriotic holiday.
