I try to not be sitting at home bored with nothing to do on the Fourth of July or any holiday for that matter. But sometimes I do end up with no plans and just sitting at home stuffing my face with food and watching movies. Which is totally fine if that’s what you want to do but if you’re like me you’ll look on instagram and see everyone doing something fun and exciting. So to make sure that you are not sitting around and eating a whole bag of potato chips here are some activities to do on this lovely holiday.
Number one go see a fireworks show even though it is later on in the day it will give you something fun and exciting to look forward to during the day. You could totally invite a few friends grab a big blanket and just lay out during that night while waiting for the show to start.
Number two have a barbecue or picnic I feel like Fourth of July is kind of known as the day for barbecues and picnics. So you can’t go wrong with having one really. It also gives you a chance to try out all those recipes you find on Pinterest and to spend time with friends and family. Like really anyone will come to your barbecue or picnic if there is free food food; is just a good thing.
The next thing you could do is go to the beach to pool and now since it is a holiday that is where everyone will probably be. So be prepared for it to be extremely packed and parking to be difficult. If you don’t mind driving around to find parking at the beach for while then go for it. I don’t have my own pool in my back yard we have a neighborhood pool which has a Fourth of July party every year so I avoid going there on this holiday. But if you have a pool of your own then you can totally invite some friends over and just spend the day splashing around and having fun.
The next thing you can do is go out and get some really cute Fourth of July photos. They don’t even have to be for instagram but just for fun. I’ve seen a lot of cute photos for this holiday on Pinterest and We Heart It. You don’t even really have to leave your house to do this if you don’t want to just carry your camera or phone around with you and take as many photos as possible. Who knows they could turn out really stupid, perfect for instagram, or just make a great memory to hold on to.
I will be going to a pool party later tonight so another thing you can do is go to or have a party. It doesn’t even have to be huge massive party. You could invite three to five friends and watch some movies, make s’mores, do some fireworks. As long as you are spending time with people you love and are having fun and making some amazing memories. It will be a good Fourth Of July.
I hope you have an amazing time today and you are spending it with people you love. I hope these Fourth of July activities were somewhat helpful or gave you an idea on what to do today. Spend time with some friends and family make some memories and eat a lot of food. Most of all celebrate and have fun today Happy Fourth Of July everyone.
