Top 5 Activities For A Festive 4th Of July

Happy soon to be 4th of July! On this day, we celebrate freedom with our great nation’s signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.

For many of our fans, this celebration comes to life in the form of backyard barbecues with loved ones. Make this a get-together to remember with this list of 5 4th of July Activities for kids, and the kids at heart.

Fizzling Fireworks: Watching fireworks light the nighttime sky is a joy. But why not bring that excitement home by making your own fireworks? Just mix together some baking soda, vinegar, and a pop of color to see how far your fireworks fizz.

Patriotic balloon toss: The anguish and thrill of family competition come to life with this Patriotic balloon toss, using red, white, and blue water balloons for the festivity. Bonus: Losers, don’t pout too much. The act of being doused in cold water from a balloon popping between your fingers is a great way to beat the heat.

Tin Can Windsocks: This activity involves paint cans, cutout stars, and streamers, and is an enjoyable activity for craft mavens and dabblers alike. Plus, the resulting Tin Can Windsocks last for years – a sentimental reminder to your first 4th of July project with your family.

Pin the star on the flag: Players are handed paper stars that stick with tape, or a tack, to pin onto a paper flag. The challenging nature of winning a game blindfolded is enough to please the kids, as well as the competitive adults, in your group.
