The original purpose of placemats was to protect the table from stains, food, and heat. Placemats evolved to become more decorative than protective. 

Many people feel that placemats are kind of out of style right now and don’t fit into a minimalist lifestyle. It is one more thing to have to wash, store, etc. 

This 4th of July placemat for kids is a different type of placemat. It is an activity placemat and is fun for kids and also protects the table! 


My children love the 4th of July. We are a military family and our patriotism runs deep. This is a special holiday for military families! 

Kids all over America get excited for the 4th of July because it means fireworks and family time. 

There are some easy ways to make the 4th of July fun for kids. 

  • Plan some simple activities ahead of time. It is usually plenty hot this time of year so including water in the schedule will bring a smile to young faces. We love to do water balloon fights. 
  • Make kid-friendly foods to keep out during the party. Fresh fruit kabobs and meat and cheese trays are always a hit with kids. 
  • Go over safety instructions with children every year to avoid any injuries or accidents. Buy kid-friendly fireworks and make sure there is always an adult assisting the kids when they are shooting fireworks. 
  • Plan some easy kid crafts to keep the children occupied all day.
