It’s hard to believe the 4th of July is almost here! Time to start thinking about ways to celebrate and having fun! I’ve found a lot of cute ways to make festive foods, fun crafts and stylish red, white & blue fashions statements that I want to share with you!
I love these strawberries. These would be so simple to make with your little ones, and look so cute. If you make them the night before, make sure to store them in the refrigerator overnight so they don’t melt!
I’m a sucker for cupcakes and these look like a lot of fun. You can get creative with how you decorate them – sprinkles, red and blue fruit, little flags on toothpicks…go crazy!
I’m always of fan of festive beverages and what a cute way to add some pizzazz to your punch with these frozen strawberry and blueberry ice cubes (hyperlink ice cubes with below link). Find a great punch recipe (I personally love sparkling water mixed with organic fruit juice – simple and delicious) and add these super cute ice cubes. You can even go crazy and add red and white striped straws, or red licorice for straws!
I love these strawberry, blueberry and banana kabobs. They are both a healthy treat, and kids will enjoy helping to make them. Make sure to flatten the ends of the kabob sticks if you have really little ones so they don’t accidently poke themselves!
Tin Can Luminaries (hyperlink luminaries with below link) are a great way to decorate your back yard. Simply recycle some old cans, paint them, punch the wholes, add the candles and voila, you’ve got a festive decoration! Your kids will have fun painting them too!
This rocket garland craft is a great craft project to give your little ones to help decorate. Hang them in the house or the back yard. They’re a fun and easy way to get your kids involved in the holiday fun!
These festive noise makers (hyperlink festive noise makers) are really fun and could even be made on 4th of July as a fun kid’s activity. They when you’re watching fireworks, your little one can be rattling their home made noise makers!
Sometimes it’s fun to dress for the occasion! Here is a really cute red, white and blue romper for a little girl.
Here are some cute 4th of July flip flops to go with the romper! (These could be for boys or girls!!)
If you want to make a fashion statement yourself, here are some really cute red slim fit skimmers that would look great with a blue and white striped shirt!
To make more of a statement, you can also sport these UGG canvas flats in a really cute white and blue pattern!
If it's a little chilly in your climate or the skies look cloudy, pack your Claudette Klassic K-Way jacket and stay warm and dry.
What are your fourth of July traditions?
