The Fourth of July is fast approaching and that means red, white and… fun! However you are ringing in America’s birthday, our Fourth of July party ideas will help keep the kids entertained.
Food glorious food
The most essential part of any party is… the food! There are so many holiday snacks you can make, and the best part is that you can get the kids involved in the preparation.
There is always fun to be had decorating cookies or cupcakes with red, white and blue sprinkles. Another great summer dish that they can help you prepare is a refreshing fruit salad. Get creative using cookie cutters to cut fruit into cute star shapes that are sure to be a hit.
Another area that the little ones love to help out with is the decorating. We’ve found a great way to not only create super cute star suncatchers, but also use all those old crayons you have laying around the house.
These festive decorations will definitely be a crowd pleaser at any party. What’s more, the kids will have a blast making them with you!
Elsewhere confetti launchers are the perfect at-home alternative to fireworks without all the safety hazards. Kids can help out with creating their own unique designs on the outside of the cannons and will love setting off their own fireworks.
Another easy craft that everyone can get involved in is the creation and exploration of slime – make the slime Fourth of July themed!
And finally, what better way to cool down on a hot summer’s day than to have a water balloon fight?! Split into different teams and have Patriots against the British to have your own historical battle.
The last key ingredient to any party is the music. Make sure to have a playlist planned with all your family’s favorite songs to groove to. Your little ones will love busting out some of the moves they have been learning in their Dance To EvOLvE classes.
