Have fun plans scheduled for the 4th?  People in our community do love their fireworks.  I can tell due to their having started letting them off a couple weeks ago.  One was so loud that it made our neighbor’s car alarm go off-craziness!

I always enjoy implementing some of the old school games in our celebrations.  Such as the 3 legged race, wheel barrow race, and a watermelon seed spitting contest (classy).  They are inexpensive and always loads of fun.

I saw a cute idea on pinterest that would be fun for the kiddos.  It’s a “Snap, Crackle, Pop” station with the firework snaps that you throw on the ground, sparklers, and bubbles.  Fun!  I wish I was that creative, but thankfully there is Pinterest to save the day-ha!
