2. Stream last year’s fireworks!
While 2020 sparks will have to wait till next year, the internet is a great place to watch last year’s fireworks from the comfort of your couch. If you really want to get into the spirit, you can bring the fireworks to your backyard with some sparklers!
We’ve linked video from YouTube that you can watch anytime, anywhere!
3. Take a virtual tour of America’s historical landmarks!
While travel may be restricted, you can see the majesty of Yosemite National Park or The Statue of Liberty with a virtual tour. It’s a great activity to learn about our country and maybe explore a place you’ve never been before!
