To kick off the 4th of July festivities, make sure to embrace your inner patriotic spirit and dress up for the occasion! Nothing says "Happy 4th of July" more than a stylish ensemble decked out in your most festive red, white or blue selection! So, get out your stars and stripes and pick out the cutest attire for the whole family to wear! For girls, you can do a simple yet stylish look such as a red, white, and blue sundress from your favorite girls clothing boutique! For boys, you can create a dapper look such as a star-spangled polo with white cargo shorts! Add festive accessories like star-shaped sunglasses or a patriotic headband, and you've got a picture-perfect outfit ready to celebrate your independence this 4th of July!

Now, let's move on to the fun stuff! Here are a few of our favorite activities that will surely help you celebrate this star-spangled holiday!

  • Parade Fun: Start off your 4th of July by attending a local parade, which has always been a cherished tradition of celebrating this special holiday! Dress your little ones in their patriotic best and embrace the red, white, and blue with mini flags or any patriotic spirit of your choice! 
  • Backyard BBQ Celebrations: Reignite a classic 4th of July tradition and host a backyard barbecue with family and friends! Fire up the grill and serve Southern favorites like smoky ribs, creamy coleslaw, and buttery cornbread. Set up a few games like cornhole or sack races to keep the kiddos entertained while the adults enjoy some leisurely conversation. Don’t forget the sweet tea and lemonade!
  • Fireworks Spectacular: As the sun sets, continue the fun with a local firework show or set up a safe and family-friendly show in the comfort of your own backyard! Hand out sparklers for the kiddos (with supervision, of course) and watch their faces light up with joy and excitement! Lay out holiday-themed blankets and pillows for a cozy fireworks viewing area, making it a magical night and the perfect way to celebrate!
  • Outdoor Activities: Another great way to celebrate and show our appreciation is to enjoy the great outdoors that our country has given us. Here are some of our favorite outdoor activities to commence this fun-filled Holiday:
  • 4th of July Scavenger Hunt: Create an at-home checklist of all the 4th of July sights your kiddos will run into over the weekend! Start off with classics such as sparklers, streamers, fireworks, and, most importantly, our American flag!

If you want to get extra festive with it, use the crafts as a way to decorate the house, displaying their perfect artwork for all to see! 
  • Fun Patriotic Games: Get into the 4th of July spirit by adding a patriotic twist to your favorite outdoor games! For example, a classic game of Capture the Flag can be made all the more fun and festive by capturing the American flag for each team! Decide who will fight for the red, white, and blue, and let the games begin!

Finally, end the night with a sweet treat and whip up some festive patriotic desserts! For example, star-shaped cookies decorated in red, white, and blue icing or a trifle-layered cake with berries and whipped cream. It's the perfect way to wrap up a day full of fun and festive activities, which we hope you enjoy as much as we do!
