During the times of social distancing, the way we celebrate holidays have changed. That doesn’t mean that you can’t get creative and spend time with those you love the most -- like your closest family and friends.
This upcoming Independence Day, get creative and celebrate the red, white, and blue with a few fun activities at home. Check out a few ideas below!
Have a Cookout in your Backyard -- What’s a holiday without some good food and drinks? Fire up the grill and gather around your family and a few close friends in your backyard. A cookout is the perfect ‘stay at home’ activity that everyone in your household can be a part of. Decorate the yard with fun red, white, and blue fixings.
Decorate Your House -- Speaking of red, white, and blue fixings, turn your home into an Independence Day paradise. Swap out your original home decor with some fun and festive looks. Decorate your bathroom, living room, and kitchen with holiday-themed towels, napkins, even fun coasters to keep you, your family, and guests entertained.
Have a Movie Night -- If you don’t want to partake in the hustle and bustle of the Independence Day holiday, plan a movie night instead. This is something you can do with your family at home or with a few close friends and turn it into a sleepover. Get creative with the occasion and have the movie night outside with a projector screen -- if the weather is nice. Don’t forget the popcorn and your favorite snacks and treats!
Go Camping -- Switch things up this Independence Day and set up a camping adventure in your backyard. Set up tents and create a bonfire to make s’mores and other fun snacks to keep your bellies full throughout the night. If the weather calls for rain, set up the camping site in your living room.
Get Active -- There’s nothing like creating a fun, activity day for everyone of all ages! While you wait on food to cook, set up some games outside that the kids and adults can participate in. Try out classic activities like hula hoop contests, kickball, horseshoes, or even incorporate fun water games with water balloons. Get really festive and have custom banners and signs to commemorate the occasion. Make sure to have fun prizes for the winners!
