4th of July Roundup - my 5 favorite tips and activities from around the web!  | Running With SpearsI LOVE  the 4th of July!!!! 

I mean, it’s 2 days before my Birthday, and therefore just one big early celebration of my  special day, right? 😉

That said, my favorite was to enjoy the festivities is to make things as low key as possible.

We always do sparklers…twice. Once at dusk so I can take pics, and again after it’s all the way dark. Then we watch the neighborhood fireworks from our yard, while eating an assortment of Little Debbie snacks — primarily Star Crunch! Yum!

I also make sure to spray us all down with my DIY bug spray (20z spray bottle + 20 drops of Purification essential oil + water) because otherwise mosquitoes eat me up in a heartbeat!

Sometimes earlier in the day we’ll do a fun craft or make a cute snack. Here’s a round up of 5 of my favorite 4th of July tips, snacks, and activities from around the web.

Firework Painting – fun simple craft using pipe cleaners.

Flag Snack – using white chocolate pretzels, strawberries, and blueberries.

Tabletop Smores – made by putting charcoal in a foil lined terra cotta pot.

Sparkler Shield – use a plastic cup to protect little hands.

Patriotic Paper Straw Bracelets – made from pipe cleaners and cut up straws.

How do you celebrate the holiday? I’d love to hear your favorite ideas to make the day fun!

4th of July Fun!!!
