DID YOU KNOW? Firework Alternatives
A large part of July 4th celebrations is making noise and filling the sky with color. Many people rely on fireworks to add spark to their festivities, but a similar effect can be achieved with noisemakers and confetti, a safe alternative to fireworks. Fill a pie tin with beans, and then top it with another pie tin. Staple and decorate with red, white and blue crepe paper, and you've just made a homemade noisemaker! For color, purchase some construction paper that can be shredded or cut into small pieces. Use it as confetti at backyard bashes.
