At Home 4th of July Party For Kids!
It has been awhile since I have posted on the blog. Life gets busy, work gets busy, but I am refreshed after a social break to bring you guys some new fun content! I can't believe we are still pretty much quarantined but it's just our new normal! Events, parties, etc. may be cancelled but that doesn't mean you can't have awesome parties at home! I love to make every holiday special for the kids and I'll be sharing affordable and easy ways you can do it yourself! The 4th of July is right around the corner and I will be sharing a fun craft, ideas to do with the family, a recipe, and how to decorate and set your table!
First up we have a fun craft! I love to incorporate the kids footprints or handprints to showcase how they grow through the years! We made bomb pop footprints! All you need is white cardstock, red & blue paint, glue, and a popsicle stick! This is a craft you can remake each year to compare how much your child has grown!
Next is our Neighborhood Parade we put together! One of our favorite family traditions is going to our cities parade for the 4th. This year it is cancelled, but we are doing something even more special! We are having the kids & parents in our neighborhood decorate their bikes, scooters, cars, or wagons and march down the Main Street in our neighborhood! People can pass out prizes, treats, etc. as long as they are individually wrapped! We thought this would be a great way to involve our community, but also keep the tradition alive. Some neighbors are even hosting a firework show for the neighborhood to enjoy!
A fun & easy recipe for the 4th is Star Pie Pops!
What you need to make:
star cookie cutter
blueberries 1 cup
strawberries 1 cup cut in small pieces
lemon juice 1/3 cup
sugar 1/4 cup
1 beaten egg
Cut out the pie crust using the star cutter. You will need two stars for each pie pop. Mix all the ingredients and boil on the stove until it is syrupy. Let set & cool down. Lay out start cut outs and push popsicle stick into the star. Add 1 tablespoon of mix in the star. Coat the edges of the star with beaten egg mixture. Lay another star on top of the first star and align the edges. Add egg mixture on top and press the star to make sure it is closed. Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
Drizzle icing on top & add sprinkles!
Last up is my favorite part! Tablescapes! I love setting the table! It sets the mood for any event! I always try to find products I can reuse for multiple holidays! For instance the star cups I found. You can use them for Memorial Day, the 4th, Labor Day, and even New Years Eve! I just switch up the straws to add a little color! I love pattern mixing and layering! Also buy solid color plates, napkins, etc. that you can reuse for multiple holidays! Red is a great color because you can use for valentines day, Memorial Day, the 4th, Father's Day, Labor Day, and Christmas! My last finishing touch is always fun confetti! Brenda from Festive Fetti always brings my visions to life and adds the perfect touch to every holiday!
Hope you all have a wonderful & safe 4th of July weekend making it special with your families!
