Two Educational, Fun Activities for Kids on July 4th Weekend, at Lefferts House in Prospect ParkThere's nothing like re-enacting something to get the whiff of how it felt to live the original event. That's why, for July 4th, there are two very special children's events offered at Prospect Park, both designed to encourage children to feel like they are part of a meaningful historic celebration.
Kids Can Sign a Copy of the Declaration of Independence on Thursday, July 4, 2013 from 1-4 p.m. Celebrate America's birthday and one of the greatest documents ever written. Kids are encouraged to make a plumed hat and sign their own "John Hancock" on a repro-Declaration of Independence.
Where it is: Lefferts Historic House is located inside Prospect Park. It's near the Park’s entrance, at the intersection of Flatbush and Ocean Avenues and Empire Boulevard.
