Fun at home- 4th of July Activities

Angela von Detten

Like most things in 2020, 4th of July is likely to also look a bit different this year! Here are some ideas you can do at home & still make this holiday one for the books!

Go Camping in your Backyard.

Can't make it to an real campsite this year? I love the idea of backyard camping instead!

Grab some blankets & sleeping bags...and enjoy watching the fireworks from the comfort of your own home!

​​​​​​​Here is a helpful guide for backyard camping! 

Take a Family Bike Ride 

Have fun with this one!

Take a few laps around your block...and make sure to decorate your bikes with flags, streamers, and ribbons!

​​​​​​​You can purchase red, white, and blue streamers here!

Create 4th of July Cocktails. 

Celebrate Independence Day with a delicious and festive sip!
Here are some quick & easy recipes I'm excited to try
