Are you hosting a Fourth of July party this year? If you are planning a family reunion, a neighborhood potluck gathering, or just inviting a few friends over for some fun, here are some fun games and activities to keep the kiddos (and parents) amused. Click on the links to grab the easy instructions.
When I think about the Fourth of July the first thing that comes to mind are fireworks. A close second though is a parade. So why not help the kids show off their patriotic spirit by decorating their bikes for a parade? Whether you plan to bike down to your neighborhood Fourth of July parade and want to look festive, or your kids are riding in the parade, your kids will look smashing with these printable bike decorations from MarthaStewart.com. No parade in your area? Host your own. Every summer our neighborhood used to have a block party and to kick off the party the kids would decorate their bikes and ride around in a little mock parade. It was so cute!
Notimeforflashcards.com created a great hide and seek game for the kids called Flag Hunt. Check out how easy it was to set up. You could also use coins or dollars in clear envelopes in the hunt. They do feature many of our founding fathers.
Balloon Dart Game
Roots and Wings Co came up with a great kids game for a Fourth of July Celebration – a balloon dart game! Click over to see how she made the board. You’ll definitely want some adult supervision for this game if you have little kids playing.
Parents.com had a cute idea with their Rocket Toss game. Have fun knocking down those patriotic cans. Parents, let the kids have a turn!
Cardboard tube rockets
You can’t go wrong with this cardboard tube rocket craft from AlphaMoms.com.
Star Spangled Luminarias
These Star Spangled Luminarias from Spoonful.com are easy to make and will help light up the night as the party goes into the evening.
Firecracker Tie Dye T-shirt
Your kids would need to make this the day before but I love the Firecracker Tie Dye T-shirt from the I Love to Create Blog. It looks exactly like the Bomb Pops or Firecracker Popsicles you get from the ice cream truck.
