The Fourth of July is about family friends and some serious good eats.
The smell of B-B-Q hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob, potato salad,
The kids love the fun too. Some fun games can keep them
occupied until its time for fireworks. Here are a few of my
Divide the kids up into teams. Next
give each team a sponge and a small bucket of
water, and another bucket to squeeze the excess water from the sponge into.
You can use two beach sand buckets for this.
Each player must first put the sponge into the bucket filled with water. Then the
player runs to the small bucket and squeezes the water
out of the sponge. They run back to their team and pass the
sponge to them, and start the process all over again.
Space your buckets about fifty feet away from each other. The team
that fills up the bucket with the most water wins. The prize
for the winner can be whatever you like.
This happens to be one of my favorite games. Its not as easy
as it sounds. Get a long piece of string or yarn and of course
balloons. You can either fill them up with air, or get some
water balloons and fill them up with water.
Divide the kids into two teams. Start by serving the balloon between the
two teams over the yarn. The object of the game is to keep the volley
ball going back and forth over the yarn. If you want it to be more challenging
use water balloons. Be sure to bring towels if you do.
Yes its pictionary with a patriotic flare.
Draw clues of founder fathers, the flag, liberty
bell and so on. Get a timer and divide the kids into teams.
You will need an easel, some paper, and a marker. Yep no

best guess on how many jelly beans are in the jar. The winner gets the jelly
Red white and Blue Scavenger Hunt

a liberty hat, a bell, tea bag (for the tea party), declaration of
independence paper and pen, and of course a flag.
