Fireworks can be loud and scary – we know. Some of us are not firework people. We got your back this Independence Day.

This Fourth of July can still boom with other fun and safe activities for the family:

1. Glow in the Dark Bubbles

Everyone LOVE bubbles, but bubbles that glow are even better. Add glow-in-the-dark solution to your bubbles to make the night shine!

2. Confetti Poppers

Like fireworks, confetti poppers are the next best thing. Throw away the lighters because confetti poppers can bring anyone joy with just a pull of a string. Prepare for a pop of confetti, which may require a bit of clean-up.

3. Confetti Filled Balloons

Balloons are a show-stopper, and even better with confetti. Confetti-filled balloons can be popped for a burst of color!

4. Glow Sticks

Crack and shake glow sticks all night to illuminate the night this Fourth of July. The classic green or variance of colors will entertain you and the kids while remaining safe from fireworks.

5. Silly String

Silly string is a fun way to entertain the entire family while getting a little messy. There may be a little clean-up, but it’s worth it for the memories made.
