4 Kid-Friendly Outdoor Activities for the 4th of July!


Here are 4 quick and easy (F-U-N) ideas to entertain your kids outside this 4th of July. 
I bet you already have everything you need in your house!
Making 4th of July Flour-Sifted Stars for your lawn, driveway, or sidewalk 
are a fun and easy 4th of July craft that is fun for kids and adults alike! 

All you need is some cardboard (a box works best) to make a stencil, 
a spray bottle of water, and a flour sifter with white flour. 




We use dollar store shaving cream then run through the sprinkler after!





 Line up some TP tubes in the backyard for water gun or super soaker target practice. 
Kids can decorate them with sharpies, markers, or colored tape.






Make some Pipe Cleaner Bubble Wands (click HERE for the post)
and see who can blow the most bubbles! 




Wishing you and your family a fun-filled 4th of July!

These look like great - and super fun - ideas! Those kids covered in shaving cream are some delighted children!

Are you sorry you didn't get the kids in bathing suits before they had a shaving cream fight?
