Fourth of July Family Fun: At Home!

0

“Hey Siri, play God Bless The USA”. I don’t know about you, but this song is one of my favorites and I play it every year on the 4th of July. I live for the holidays, so I am so excited to share some fun family ideas with you to celebrate the 4th of July at home with your family!

Decor

No celebration is complete without decorations! I have made themed tables for holidays ever since my 4-year-old was little. (Way too young to appreciate my efforts, but the photos were cute).

I started with this super easy and festive table cloth backdrop. It’s easy but a little time-consuming. So, put the kids in bed, turn on your favorite music, and start crafting! I bought plastic fencing on Amazon and then I bought red, white, and blue table cloths from Party City. I cut different lengths of strips out of the tablecloths and then wove them through the fencing. Such a fun and inexpensive way to decorate!

To finish out the table, I just grab some red, white, and blue items from around the house. I already had this pinata and these napkins from previous holidays. I bought these plates from Target for $3 and these flags were 8 for $5. I already had this mason jar, so it was perfect to hold the flags.

Food

Y’all know this is the best part of any party! Below are some of my favorite treats to make on the 4th of July! 

For breakfast, I start with this patriotic toast. I spread butter all over the toast and then I add the strawberries and blueberries for the stars and stripes. You can easily make this with cream cheese, bananas, strawberry jam, whipped cream, etc! 

These fruit pizzas are so fun to make, and they taste amazing! If we are going to a party or having guests over, then I will make one big one. If we’re just at home with the kids, then I do these personal-sized pizzas for them to decorate themselves. They’re just sugar cookies (I use the Pillsbury place and bake cookies) and then vanilla icing topped with fruit. 

I love this fun take on chips and salsa. Such a good snack to have when you’re grilling out or hanging by the pool!

Crafts

This is one of my favorite crafts to make. This bomb pop banner is so fun and festive! It also doubles as fun decor! This was our 4th of July table last year. I bought the pinwheels from Hobby Lobby and added the bomb pop garland to complete the background. Then I just added some decor from around the house. (You’ll notice I used almost the same props from last year as I did this year)

This handprint flag is so fun and easy! 

This 4th of July card is a little more hands-on but so cute!

These bomb pop footprint popsicles are definitely my favorite!

I hope this gives you some fun inspiration to have a 4th of July party at your home! Pro Tip: you don’t have to go out and buy a ton of stuff. Just use things that you already have at home!

I hope you and your family have a safe and happy 4th of July!
