Happy Birthday America!!! Are you going to any parades today? How about fireworks? Natalie set up a parade with some of our dolls last night and they are wishing you a Happy 4th of July!!

Can you name all the dolls in this photo? They are all dolls we have featured recently! The red convertible is from Build-a-Bear and sells for $30. It easily fits two 18″ dolls and has held up to a lot of play over the past few years very well.

For today’s day of doll play, set up a parade with your dolls. Dress them in red, white and blue. Decorate their scooters or bikes. Make a float. Give them some flags. And then when you are done, take a picture and email it to me at share@dolldiaries.com. I have already received some great July 4th photos from readers and will do a virtual parade post to add them all to.

July 4th doll play printable Today’s printable has a template for making your parade flags – you should know the drill on these by now – cut the flag out, place a toothpick on the fold line, fold and glue the two sides of the flag together. There are also some stars you can use to decorate your parade vehicles (like Natalie did with the scooter in the picture above) and then there is a word scramble puzzle to test your 4th of July knowledge.

I am looking forward to seeing your parade! Have a great day and stay cool!
