We realize that we usually write about music and formal event planning ideas, but you know what? We are all about the party…even when it’s not ours to plan. As a result, we thought we would toss out a few ideas to help you to enjoy this holiday weekend…even while social distancing.
Unfortunately, several cities and municipalities are having to cancel their Independence Day celebrations and fireworks shows. No worries! You may not be able to celebrate your liberty in the same way you did last year, but there are still plenty of things you can do at home to get your fourth of July handled like a champ. Let’s discuss.
Fire up the grill and invite a friend or two.
Burgers, hot dogs, vegan dogs, or whatever on the grill can make any day better. Seriously, nothing appeals more to our most primitive nature than smelling items cooking over flames. Plus, a cookout is the perfect stay-at-home idea because you and one or two guests can still socialize from a distance. So, pick the grill food of your choice, toss it on the flame, and be sure to grab your favorite beverages and sides.
Play some yard games.
Nothing is more fun with the fam or a few friends than playing games in the yard. Whether it be corn hole, badminton, or just tossing a Frisbee around, nothing says I love liberty more than an outdoor activity. Given the recent events, let’s just keep those activities at home.
Grab some red, white, and blue attire.
Just because you’re at home doesn’t mean you can’t dress for the occasion. Hold a contest for most American attire. Could be fun.
Water Balloon Fight.
How about adding to the fun on a hot summer’s day by having some good old fashion wet and wild fun. Break up into family teams, play capture the flag, or just sneak up on your mom and help her cool off a bit.
Have some patriotic treats.
From frosted cookies to popsicles, there are a plethora of treat options available to celebrate the fourth. You could even make it a family event by making homemade treats together as a family.
Either way, there’s no sense in just moping around the house because we can’t get out to see fireworks or head to a concert. You can literally make anything fun if you just brainstorm about it. If you’re looking for ideas on future events, or need some help planning a few, give us a shout. We’d be glad to help .
