One of the biggest events of summer is the fourth of July. Children of all ages love this holiday. There are fireworks, snacks, and big meals to enjoy. The top American themed pool party idea for kids is a patriotic celebration on the fourth of July. Start with decorations. Visit a local dollar store or party store for inexpensive decorations and accessories. Purchase red, white and blue napkins, paper plates, pinwheels, balloons and other basic decorations.


While many fireworks may not be safe for children to set off, most love sparklers, glowing snakes, and other traditional fourth of July items. Just make sure that an adult lights these items and closely supervises children during their use.
