Here are some of her recommendations for ‘Safe Alternatives to Fireworks‘:

  1. Glowsticks – cheap, bright, and colorful. They don’t heat up and excellent for sensory play.
  2. Piñatas – the sky is the limit for the selections of piñatas you can purchase at a store, or make on your own. It can look like a star or firecracker, be red, white and blue, or whatever you want.
  3. Confetti Eggs – uses biodegradable, colored shredded paper for some safe and explosive fun.
  4. LED Ropes – can be really fun for nighttime dancing, and great for a laugh.
