4th of July Activities to Keep the Family Entertained All Day

Everyone will have a blast celebrating Independence Day.

Like almost everything in 2020, the 4th of July is likely to look a little different in this age of social distancing. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t break out your best 4th of July party ideas. Even if this year’s 4th get-together is just limited to immediate family, you can still create a photo-op worthy day—complete with Instagram-friendly 4th of July captions. We’re talking grilling assorted meats, making s’mores, waving sparklers, and camping out in the backyard.

But what about if you have major traditions—like visits to community pools or park-side fireworks? We know. It’s tough when everything is so uncertain. The long and short of it is we don’t know what will happen in July, so why not amend your plans and focus more on family this year? In lieu of a parade, go on a family bike ride (with bikes decked out in 4th of July party decorations). Instead of heading to the ballpark, consider putting together a baseball game in the front yard, or skip the theater and set up a backyard movie night to watch The Sandlot. You can also give everyone in the family a dish to make and a summer party idea to execute. This holiday will still be one for the books thanks to any one of these family-friendly 4th of July ideas.

Throw a Family-friendly Fourth U-Pick Party

After visiting a berry picking farm, head home and turn the fruits of your labor into some fruity desserts. When the baking is done, head outside to enjoy the sweet treats—like blueberry whoopie pies— under blue skies.

Take a Family Bike Ride

No neighborhood 4th of July parade this year? No problem. You and your immediate family can have your very own private parade by decorating your bikes with flags, streamers, and ribbons, and setting off together for a few casual laps around the block. The ride will help everyone work up an appetite before the celebratory barbecue.

Play Patriotic Games

Spark some fun family competition with Independence Day-inspired games, like stars-and-stripes tic tac toe or tossing red, white, and blue water balloons. Should the weather not pan out, you can also keep kids entertained inside with a round of Go Fish—from a patriotic card deck, of course.

There are a whole lot more 4th of July patriotic games to play. Just click below:
