The fourth of July has always been on the beach at the lake, followed by a bbq and then fireworks. Since having my kids we've done the fun in the sun and the bbq but not the fireworks (fireworks start WAY after their bedtime and my kids like/need their sleep). They are also too young at 1 & 3 to know what they are missing. When they are older we'll do the fireworks.
I knit a hat for my son but he wasn't very cooperative with the photo shoot.
One year olds tend to want to pull anything off they can :).
I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I can't post a link to the pattern because I made it up. I just wish he would have kept the darn thing on. Oh well.
Here is a recipe for s'mores bars that were super easy, not healthy, and fun to put together with a three-year old.
~Grease a 13x9 ban, one layer of graham crackers on the bottom, prepare a package of brownies according to directions and spread batter over graham crackers. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes until brownies are done, sprinkle 2 cups of mini marshmallows, 1 cup of chocolate chips, and 2/3 cup chopped peanuts over the top of the brownies, broil in oven for a minute or two until marshmallows are browned. Delicious (small children can help with the layering of crackers and the sprinkling of goodies).
