Every time I think of the 4th of July, I think of fireworks. Although the bright displays are a favorite among adults, many parents have to be cautious about exposing their children to them. Since fireworks produce loud booms and big sparks, they may frighten children and cause them to react negatively — especially if they are young. That's why having some fireworks videos to watch on the 4th of July is a good way to introduce them to the concept of fireworks and gradually prepare them for the in-person spectacle they'll experience in the future.
Aside from fireworks being scary to some children, exposing your young child to fireworks can cause other issues too. According to the website for The Today Show, exposing your child to live fireworks can cause unnecessary stress and anxiety. Additionally, the article noted that parents should take their children's fears of fireworks seriously and spend time coaching them through what to expect when it comes to fireworks, which can be done when watching fireworks videos.
So, whether you're looking for a way to let your little one enjoy fireworks without seeing them in person or if you're just testing their fear level out, here are 11 fireworks videos for them to watch.
