This is kind of a no-brainer, America has been lighting off fireworks to celebrate American Independence since it’s first anniversary in 1777. Most cities put on a firework show for their communities. Hop in the car and follow the booms!
- If you’re looking for a safer option this year due to COVID-19, get dad to run to a local firework stand and have your own at-home firework show.
This is a fun activity, in the craft section at Walmart you’ll find t-shirts for about $1.50-$2.00, grab a couple of those and red, white & blue fabric paint. Get your creative juices flowing, crank up the music and go crazy!
It’s not 4th of July without a bonfire and s’mores. Pitch a ten, build a fire and end the night with scary stories around the fire. The “Campfire” marshmallow brand carries red, white & blue marshmallows ($1.88 at Walmart), use these to make your s’mores more festive.
There are hundreds of patriotic crafts for kids on the internet. A few of my favorites are popsicle stick flags, fireworks in a jar, and red white and blue flower pots. Hit up Pinterest, run to the dollar store and get creative.
This is the most authentic way to celebrate Independence Day, eat all American and deck your foods out in red, white & blue. See our “Fun Easy 4th of July Food” blog to find ways to impress at your function.
