Happy Independence Day! I hope you and your family are having a wonderful holiday celebrating our nation’s founding. We are at home this year, enjoying things like biking to view the houses in our neighborhood yard decorating contest, cooking Southern summer favorites and shopping a few of the July 4th sales.
Yesterday my daughter and I made a patriotic trifle to watch Hamilton and today I think we are going to make these hydrangea cupcakes in blue. We also might watch 1776 again. It’s the original musical about our nation’s founding and available on Amazon Prime. (A DoSayGive reader told me it’s her family’s tradition to watch annually on July 4th!)
One of my favorite ways to teach my girls about our country’s heritage is though books. If you want to dive into more history with your children you may want to check out some of the classic books we’ve gathered below.
Did I miss any of your favorites? Let me know below!
Happy Independence Day!
