1. Kid’s Fireworks stand
This is great for all ages and can easily be setup and taken down. Get out some monopoly money and a stand or table that they can “sell” their fireworks at. I guarantee the kids will love selling it as much as they love doing the sparklers on Independence Day.
2. 4th of July themed face paint!
Everyone loves getting a little something on their face, it makes them feel extra special. Get out some paint and paint a firework flag, or something red white and blue. Great for all ages, young and old.
3. July 4th Sidewalk Chalk
You know you’ve got some sidewalk chalk around the house, just about every parent does. Now’s the time to break it out. Red, white, and blue will do the trick. Challenge everyone to draw a firework and vote on it as a family.
4. Dress extra for Independence Day
Since you’re stuck at home during Covid and no one outside of your immediate family will see it, use it as an opportunity to get goofy. Kids love wearing special clothes, find anything red white and blue that you have laying around and let them wear it. Turn it into a contest to see who can wear the most July 4th pieces out of their closet.
5. Turn your food into July 4th Stars
Don’t forget about your food. If you’ve got a star cookie cutter around, let your kids punch stars out of fruit, cookies, cheese, anything they can really. They’ll enjoy doing it and you’ll get a break from doing all the prep.
