20 Incredible Fourth of July Ideas – Food, Crafts, Games and More!

Every year on the Fourth of July, I fail to plan in advance for what to do. It’s one of the few holidays my husband has off work, and with four kids, we need to know what we’re doing in advance. This year, the whole family was going to meet up at a local amusement park, but we decided that we just weren’t up to it with a new baby and the recent heat. Instead, we’re going to go play laser tag, have a barbecue and maybe do an ice cream party!

Whatever we do, it’ll be fun because we’re together, right?

If you need a little last minute inspiration, though, I do have you covered. I’ve got ideas for food, home decor, fashion, games and more! Just click the links to see more!
