Parades, fireworks, watermelon, firecrackers, corn on the cob, yard games – all of these remind me of great July 4ths of years past. With the nation’s birthday on our heels, we’ve found a few fun ways to help your family celebrate the 4th of July, courtesy of Pinterest!
This is a super simple craft for kiddos. On black construction paper (resembling the night sky), use glue to draw fireworks. Follow it up with a sprinkling of red, silver and blue glitter and shake the excess off.
Be sure to put them on display for everyone to see!
There are so many types of nail polish now, including glittery and ones that add texture, as well as super handy polish pens, allowing you to add detail to your nails. Grab some red, white and blue and get creative! Of course, that goes without saying if you have a patient enough daughter. Otherwise, an even coat of red, white and blue by itself works perfect.
This super neat drink is part science, but mostly delish! To layer the red, white and blue fill your glass 1/3 with CranApple juice, followed by filling it to the top with ice. Slowly add one cup of White Sobe Pina Colada flavored drink and one cup of blue Gatorade (G2). put in some cherries or fun straw and sit back with this refreshing drink and watch the fireworks!
This table decor looks very easy and just might end up getting eaten by the time the night is over. Go to your local candy shop and check out the huge variety in Jelly Belly candies. Grab a bag of pina coladas (white), red apple (bright red) and blueberry (blue). Arrange them in a small glass and stick American flags in them. Very simple, cute and tasty!
I love this onesie. It’s from Etsy and I’m sure there are older kids shirts, too. It’s a “Made in the USA” onesie and nothing says American pride like this outfit.
This family craft is a way to show your pride for Uncle Sam. Literally. Follow these instructions to create a unique and cute Uncle Sam windsock. I would recommend this for kiddos older than five and it does require some parent help since it calls for a hot glue gun.
Smarties, share your favorite 4th of July pins!
