Independence Day in America

Independence Day is the birthday of the United States of America and is celebrated on the Fourth of July each year. Independence Day is the anniversary of the day on which the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776. Independence Day was first celebrated in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776. In this link, you can see a photocopy of the original document!
By the way,  American Congress declared July 4 a legal public holiday in 1941. Nowadays, there are lots of celebrations and activities around parades, picnics, barcecues and fireworks! 

Here you can find different recipes which some families cook for this special day:
  • There's nothing like a bright smile to create a happy atmosphere. This cheesecake will have everyone smiling. If you prefer you can use peeled apple chunks or banana slices for the nose and eyes and strawberries in place of the raspberries. Serve each piece with a small dollop of cool whip topped with the extra pieces of fruit.
  • These dessert brownies have just a hint of peppermint taste. The walnuts and raisins are optional.
  • These are cute little desserts to serve the children at your July 4th party. They will be excited over the special effort you made for them to help them celebrate this special day.
  • This pretty gelatin mold is a refreshing treat on a hot July day. Blue gelatin can be used in place of the strawberry gelatin if you prefer.
I have an easy craft to propose all of you. You will love to make and wear this clever flag craft! It's made out of safety pins and beads. Try to do by your own and make the flag you want. 
Besides that you can make these fun smiley face pins for your friends and family.
