  • Of course. My youngest is now 8 but they all did them from the time they could hold things with a little help from me of course. Why break tradition it's 26 years of sparklers in my house for kids!

  • NO! I am terrified of sparklers! And no, I'm not kidding... I seriously have nightmares about those things! When I was a kid I was burn rather badly by one and caught my house on fire with another one... Now, just the idea of bringing them home sends a shiver down my spine... Not a chance! Our town has a fireworks show, and my DH and I buy other fireworks, but my kids are limited to snaps... Nothing than can burn my house down!

  • yes , i am always with her so she is safe. i have taught her how to handle them and where not to fling them. I think she is pretty good with them!

  • I wish I could, but we are under a burn ban this year and even our local fireworks show has been cancelled. :(

  • Yes we will let our daughter do them. We did some the other day I got a pack of the extra long ones but they didnt work so well which really blew bc the kids (6 total) were so excited & all they did was fizz out every few secs & some didnt even burn all the way up/down =( we will get the good ol' little ones from now on got to grab 'em they are at the gas station =)
