Independence Day is right around the corner and that means it is time for 4th of July fun! This is probably one of our favorite holidays. Food, fun, family, friends, and fireworks, all together in the middle of our favorite season… what’s not to love?!? Maybe you are hosting a festive gathering or perhaps just attending one this year. Either way, we’ve got your style and sweet snacks covered!

4th of July Style for Kids

Dressing the part

One thing we love most about holidays is theme wear. Dressing our kids in adorable red, white, and blue outfits for the 4th of July is a must and The Children’s Place has quite a variety of options.  From babies to big kids, they have it all!

How to throw the COOLEST 4th of July party

Our boys love the comfortable and casual graphic tees that can be thrown on with shorts or swim trunks. We also couldn’t resist these coordinating shades to help complete their looks.

4th of July Style for Girls

Sweet sundresses are the perfect way to keep girls cool in the summer. Lots of stars, stripes, and ruffles adorn the cute options at The Children’s Place.

4th of July Swimsuits for Girls

Chances are that you’ll be around some sort of water for the holiday. Maybe the beach or pool, or maybe just enjoying some old fashioned backyard fun in the sprinkler. Your kids can still dress the part and show their patriotic pride in swimsuits featuring stars and stripes.

Cooling off with Star Spangled Ice Cream Sandwiches

With all that 4th of July fun in the sun, you are likely to be looking for ways to beat the heat. What better way to cool off than with these festive ice cream sandwich pops. Putting a patriotic twist on classic ice cream sandwiches only takes a few minutes and we promise your kids (and you!) will love them.
