Independence Day – Fourth of July


These Independence Day – Fourth of July resources are some that I have recommended to Parents Anonymous parents. Resources are in alphabetical order according to the resource titles. If you find a broken link or have a resource to share with other parents please use the contact form below.

Cheap is good, free is better! It is my endeavor to locate no-cost resources for parents but occasionally some websites will charge some type of membership fees or subscription. Ultimately, it is the parent’s responsibility to monitor their child’s online activities.

      Thank you! I’m in the process of doing this for many holidays. I collect these for busy parents that do not have time to search and weed out resources. Even now, I’m already collecting things to add to them as I go when I update. Hopefully, in a year’s time, I should have most holidays done, even “Festivus for the rest of us.” Thank you again.

        Not sure if this would be of any interest to you, but I have a Global Events page here:

        I would be happy to list your new collections each time you do them!

        I appreciate that! I want to include all major holidays in the U.S. first because many of those overlap in many cultures. I want to put up any Native American celebrations next. I understand they don’t have ‘holidays’ as we know them but rather celebrations, pow-wows, observances and events.

        I would like to have holidays that represent all the cultures who live in the U.S. I know almost nothing about Ramadan but I found several great resources.

        I also make my own Cryptograms and Word Searches for all kinds of things. I can make Crosswords, too, but those are more labor intensive.

        One thing I run into is there is not much information about specific, little-known holidays. I spoke with a Native American blogger/friend and he said ‘holidays’ are an European concept. Another issue is dates that change and websites that are put up for that year only. I never realized how complicated that would be until I began this. (I shudder to think of all the different tribes!)

        With Native American celebrations, until I can get information together, I plan to make a “Native American” holiday page to request information from the public and Native Americans in particular. I definitely want them represented in this, especially to educate non-Natives about their celebrations.

        The other thing I work with is scheduling; my #1 goal is to write one article per week for this blog. Once that is done and is posted I have dozens of little chores to do in operation and support of parents, some is one-on-one support. That’s when I get a brief break to work on the holidays link. That is besides working on this blog.

        I am energized, though, and I plan to stick with it.

        Thank you, Gator Woman. I appreciate you taking the time to send this resource… I’ve already filed it for future use. :)

        Talk about a small world! :) Did he tell you how little I know? I sought him out because I know he is knowledgeable. I have a Winnebago friend in Wisconsin who belongs to the same organization as I but she doesn’t blog. She actually just got back from Russia where she talked about her experience in America.

        I do know little but I, and many others, want to learn. My website is devoted to parents, parenting and learning a better way.

        What can I present to parents in the U.S. and other areas about Native American celebrations, remembrances, observances that people read and use? If they do an annual remembrance of Little Big Horn then I want to put that on my blog as a resource. That is what I am looking for.

        We have been to the recreation of Little Big Horn in Montana.
        The year that we met, we went to many places I knew he had never been to out West.
        I took him to many Reservations in the West and then to other places that were of great Historical importance to Native Culture.
        We have combined my education in Anthropology and Native American Studies with his own family’s History.
        We work together on many projects dedicated to Native Culture.
        It has been great for both of us.

        That sounds awesome! My husband is from Peru and he identifies with the people that were there before the Spaniards came. Sadly, I have been unable to travel to Peru due to my disabilities but I have absorbed every documentary possible. Our daughters did go to Peru, though, and loved it. ;)
