Independence Day is just around the corner - and it’s the perfect time to engage in some fun activities with the fam! In this blog post, we’ll be taking you through some of our favorite activities for a family-friendly and fun 4th celebration!
Time to get out the sparklers - 4th of July is coming up, and it’s time to celebrate! There are plenty of innovative, creative ways to spend this holiday with the fam. Whether you’re having an in-home celebration or opting for a get-together at the park, or beach, we’ve got you covered. Without further ado, here are some of our favorite 4th of July activities that you and the rest of your family are guaranteed to enjoy!
- Gather with friends and family for a 4th of July barbecue/cookout. This is a type of get-together that can be held anywhere and can be held as an intimate family gathering or accomodate extended family members. On your cookout menu, be sure to include appetizers (like a charcuterie board, chips and dip, or buffalo wings), a refreshing salad (such as a potato or pasta salad or a summer-centric option like a watermelon, tomato, and feta salad), drinks like lemonade and soda, and yummy desserts like cupcakes or brownies. In addition to delectable foods, patriotic decorations, and outdoor games and activities, curate a 4th of July playlist to play during the festivities!
- Take a family bike ride. You and your family can have your very own patriotic parade by decorating your bikes with ribbons, streamers, and other patriotic-themed decorations. This is a great way to stay active and work up an appetite before the family barbecue as well!
- Play patriotic outdoor games. These games can range from stars-and-stripes tic-tac-toe, a patriotic water balloon toss, or even a round of Crazy 8’s or Go Fish from a patriotic-themed card deck!
- Finally, finish off your day by watching the fireworks. Whether you’re traveling to see a fireworks spectacular or staying local, fireworks are a 4th of July staple. If you’re choosing to stay in this holiday, you can also have a sparklers show in the backyard with your loved ones!
The 4th of July is a holiday that only comes once a year - and it is a great opportunity to connect with your loved ones while celebrating the beautiful country we call home!
