The 4th of July marks the peak of summer, and it can be an exciting time for your toddler. Not only there are yummy foods to eat like BBQ dishes and fruits like berries and watermelons, there is usually much excitement around the holiday itself.
Many families take vacations or go camping. Often, families watch fireworks or buy sparklers for the little kids to use.
