Patriotic kids wear for the 4th of July that still looks cute on the 5th, 6th, 7th and you get the idea

Flag SneakersI still remember the ’76 bicentennial (yes, I am that old), dressing in head-to-toe red, white and blue and waving to beeping cars at the end of our street. Now that I have kids, I try to find something patriotic for the kids to wear on the fourth. But since my wallet frowns upon one-day-only wearables, I have been on the lookout for tasteful, adorable and, yes, patriotic items the kids can look cute in beyond just a single day. -Christina

Whether they’re marching in a Fourth of July parade or just standing on the sidelines, these Chuck Taylor Flag Sneakers are bound to get noticed. I love Chucks in any color, though this stars-and-stripes version looks so much cooler than a bedazzled flag tee.  (infant/toddler sizes at Piperlime)



Mitetees Made in the USA

With just a simple logo, CMP favorite Mitetees, has created a shirt my kids could wear to camp, the playground or just around the house without looking like they were sporting some post-holiday castaway. The Made in the USA message is perfect for the 4th, though true locovores may prefer to have the shirt personalized for their own home state too.

Piggy Paint
Here’s a smart idea: instead of investing in new clothes for the girls, grab some nailpolish in red, white and blue. I like the looks of Piggy Paints patriotic set
of three safe nail polishes (for when they lick the ice cream off their fingers) and they’re all made in the USA of course.Though of course they are
pitched to girls, make no mistake, I have one little boy who will insist
his fingers get done up too. (at Chasing Fireflies)
