A Bilingual Fourth of July


Tomorrow families all over nuestro país will be celebrating the 4th of July. If you are looking for a few fun activities or good reads, below is a list of some of my favorites in English and Spanish.

There's not too much out there for bilingual families. Hmmm...maybe a good idea for some publishers out there, no?


But here's to a happy Independence Day to all of you!

Crafts

First of all, if you are looking for history activities and crafts in English, please check out my article on Mamiverse, 7 Fun Family Activities to Celebrate July 4th.

My Pinterest boards on Fourth of July Kid Crafts, Presidents' Day, and America the Beautiful also have a lot of colorful and easy ideas for crafts to keep your kids busy today and tomorrow.
