Independence Day; A day normally filled with boisterous parades, neighborhood block parties, and the explosive grande finale of fireworks. With the Covid-19 Virus still posing a risk to our communities many towns have decided to forgo their annual displays of patriotism. Although this year we'll be celebrating a little differently we wanted to explore other ways to make the most of America’s birthday weekend!
Here are just a few ideas to *spark* some family fun this year:
- Barbecue- An American staple, who doesn’t love firing up their grill for a classic grilled hot dog or cheeseburger? Go the extra mile with your own red, white, & blue decor, specialty cocktails, and yummy desserts for a special holiday vibe.
- Water Balloons- Kids and adults alike can beat the heat with some fun water activities outside. Fill up some water balloons, turn on the sprinkler, lay down the slip and slide and get drenched!
- Backyard Camping- Dust off that tent and get the s’mores ready! Spend a night underneath the stars with an impromptu camping session right in your backyard. Be sure to follow your town’s fire safety procedures before starting any fires!
- Patriotic Playlist- Wanting a soundtrack for your holiday? Check out THESE playlist ideas and the best songs to accompany all your glorious weekend plans!
- Feature the Flag- Displaying our nation’s flag is one of the easiest ways to get in the spirit. Whether you choose to fly the star spangled banner just on this day, or year round, it’s an important reminder and symbol of our nation’s history.
- DIY confetti poppers- Safe and creative, crafting your own party poppers are a fun alternative to sparklers and great for kids of all ages! Click HERE for a step-by- step tutorial!
- Get Crafty - Have a little fun making your own decorations. 4th of July is a great time to show your creative side with your family. We can't wait to try the 4th of July Lantern Jars for our holiday table.
No matter which way you celebrate, we here at Georgetown Insurance want to wish you a safe, fun-filled weekend. Happy Fourth of July!
