The 4th of July is so much fun, with hot dogs, snow cones, and fireworks. If you decide to host a 4th of July get-together, or just want to entertain your own family with some great ideas, look no further. Following are some great ideas for 4th of July activities.
One fun game is a red, white, and blue balloon dart game. All you need is a bulletin board, patriotic balloons, and a few darts. Underneath the balloons, you can place small pieces of paper with notes indicating what prize has been won. Prizes can be candy bars or popsicles from a cooler.
Watermelon carving is a fun twist on a Halloween activity. Scoop out the watermelon with a melon baller, for serving at the party, then have fun carving watermelon quarters into faces, shapes, or animals.
Cupcake decorating is a blast at parties. You can socialize while you decorate, or help the kids decorate. All you need are homemade, or premade, cupcakes, frosting in red, white, and blue colors, and various sprinkles and candies in the same colors. Make sure you have a plastic tablecloth for easy cleanup.
Duck pond fishing is an enjoyable activity for a warm July day. Using a small wading pool, magnetized rubber ducks and a magnetic fishing pole, tape some laminated or plastic-coated slips of paper indicating prizes, or use colored markings on the bottom for the same reason. Games involving prizes make for lots of enjoyment at a 4th of July party.
