How Do You Celebrate Independence Day?

One of the days that we all look forward to each year is Independence Day. July 4th is an important date and a memorable one in the hearts and minds of all Americans. Of course, when you have a family in tow, you will want to celebrate the day together.

As you can imagine, we all have different ways of celebrating Independence Day. How do you celebrate yours? If you don’t really do much for the occasion, you might be looking for some inspirational ideas on how you can make July 4th a date to remember in each year of your family’s lives together.

In today’s blog post, I will share with you some cool ways that you can all celebrate that day together. There are plenty of family-friendly ideas for you to consider, plus they will make sure your children won’t feel bored or cranky on the day. Check them out:

Have a barbecue

While it’s traditional to celebrate Independence Day with some fireworks in the evening, the chances are high that younger children might be frightened of the noises. Plus, it’s important to spend the day doing fun activities together, as they will most likely want to sleep come early evening!

With that in mind, perhaps one of the most fun things to organize for Independence Day is a family barbecue! If you’re not a fan of stinky fires and smelling like a cigarette, it might be worth looking at char broil digital electric smokers as an alternative.

Regardless of how you cook your food, barbecues also offer the perfect chance for everyone to be social and play fun games together. Plus, if you ask your family members to contribute some food, it will keep your grocery bills down for that day too!

Sidewalk chalk party

If barbecues aren’t your thing, why not have a sidewalk chalk party instead? Block parties are great, and it gives all the kids in the neighborhood a chance to be creative with chalk while their parents socialize with each other.

Patriotic bike parade

Do you and your family enjoy cycling? And is there often parades going up and down your town’s major roads? Why not create a street parade of your own with your bicycles! All the kids can decorate their bikes at home and then join together for a bike parade!

Get involved with some patriotic crafts

Everyone knows that children enjoy being creative and making stuff. One neat idea is to have your kids make some crafty creations with an American theme! From Uncle Sam hats to red, blue and white sparklers, there’s something for everyone when it comes to making Independence Day themed items.

Have an indoor party

Traditionally, we would all go outside to celebrate July 4th. But, if the weather isn’t favorable and you’d rather not get soaking wet outdoors, why not have an indoor party instead? The advantage of doing that is you can also do things like watch some Hollywood blockbusters or play board or table games with each other.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
