Homemade sparkler decorations: a great family project for the Fourth of July

By LisaMarie Sinatra

Sparklers play a huge role in Fourth of July preparations but as you know, NFPA wants you to leave the fireworks to the professionals. Each year on Independence Day, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks.

Few people really understand the associated risks including devastating burns, incendies, and even death.

Le Alliance to Stop Consumer Fireworks is a group of health and safety organizations, coordinated by NFPA, that urges the public to avoid the use of consumer fireworks and instead, to enjoy displays of fireworks conducted by trained professionals.

This Fourth of July, opt out of using consumer fireworks and check out these three simple DIY projects from our friends at MarthaStewart.com. These paper sparkler ideas offer a great alternative to the real thing and are a great family project that everyone will have fun doing together.

This weekend, enjoy the holiday in style and with fire safety in mind. Happy Fourth, everyone!
