5 Unique Ways to Celebrate Fourth of July
Although your July 4th plans may have changed a bit, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate all the fun this summer holiday has to offer—and still keep your family safe and healthy. Here are 5 ideas for how you and your family can celebrate this weekend:
Host a Patriotic Movie Night
Each family member gets to choose one of their favorite patriotic movies (you can get some ideas here) for an afternoon/evening of movie fun. If you are hosting a larger group, move the movie outside for socially distanced watching. Another fun idea? Everyone gets to choose a red, white, or blue snack to share.
Decorate Your Bike
Even if your neighborhood celebration has been postponed, you and the family can still have your own patriotic parade. Have the kids decorate their bikes with streamers, flags and ribbons and take a few laps around the block.
Have a U-Pick Picnic
Plan a trip to a local berry picking farm (find a good list of local spots here) and head home to create a picnic of berry-inspired creations. From salads to sweet treats (get some recipe ideas here), your family will have a great time using the literal fruits of your labor.
Create a Hot Dog Eating Contest
Be inspired by a Fourth of July tradition, Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest, and create a contest for your family. You can even create your own “Mustard Belt” for the winner.
Have a Patriotic Concert
Whether they use real instruments or homemade ones, your family will have a blast belting out some of your favorite songs. No instruments? No problem. Make your own patriotic song list and have a lip sync competition. Spotify has a great list here.
