Who says COVID-19 has to rain on our parade? This year 4th of July traditions may look a little different across the country, but there are still many ways to celebrate the holiday with your family at home while having fun, and most importantly keeping everyone safe.
5 Ways To Celebrate At Home
Face painting – What better way to start off the holiday with your kids than a little patriotic face paint? Seeing all the cool designs and colors is sure to get them excited and guaranteed to make a more memorable weekend.
4th of July bingo – If you’re really short on time or don’t want to run out to the store, a fun game of bingo at home is always a good option. You can make the cards yourself by hand or printout free downloadable bingo cards with a festive 4th of July theme. You can also get creative with the prizes if you don’t have any on hand, such as picking the next film for movie night or a treat on desert night.
Grill out at home - You can never go wrong with making fresh food on the grill, plus it gives your family a break from the indoors! If you happen to have friends or family over outside of your home, we suggest making sure there is plenty of hand sanitizer available and that guests wear face coverings. It is also recommended to spread out the seating arrangement to follow social distance guidelines.
Make red, white & blue treats – Is there even a more delicious way to end your Independence Day feast? Creating some red, white, and blue treats are yummy to eat and gets the kids involved in the preparations as well. Some fun recipes the whole family can enjoy are pretzel sparklers, fire cracker bundt cake and patriotic trail mix!
Write a note to someone who’s served – There never seems to be a big enough thank you that we can give to those who have made endless sacrifices to serve our country. Show your children how to extend their gratitude by writing a letter to someone you know who has served or is currently serving today, it will be sure to put a big smile on their face!
