“Spectacular” Kid Friendly 4th of July Ideas

I’ve fell into a new rabbit hole this week.  PinterestHeard of it?  It’s so crazy awesome. The inspiration is endless.  It’s like an electronic corkboard of ideas to share.

Anyways, I was coming across some great kid friendly 4th of July ideas and before you know it I had a nice little collection.  I had to share, because they are just so adorable and doable.  And besides, I probably won’t get around to making most of them, post-surgery and all, so you can try them out for me! =)

    These are awesome ideas! We are in drought conditions where I live and aren’t shooting off fireworks and I have been wondering how to celebrate with my kids. These ideas will definitely help. Thanks for sharing.

    I am going to visit some great kids tomorrow and was just thinking – I wonder what fun things we could do for the 4th? Fantastic timing. ;)

    I’m taking a flag cake (yellow cake with whipped cream topping, raspberries and blueberries or you could do cream cheese frosting and red and blue M&M’s.) We’ll light a sparkler, stick it in the cake as a candle and sing Happy Birthday to America. Then you can use the rest of the sparklers to write your name in the sky. Simple but a lot of fun.

    Thanks for the ideas. So glad to hear you are on the mend!
    I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July!
    God bless America. :)

    I made the fruit kabobs and it was easy and fun! Thanks for the great idea. I have tried Pintrest and am still figuring it out. Hope you feel better soon!

    Made the flag cake for the Cub SCout Pack 4th of July Picnic and it was really good. I am not the best baker and it was super easy. Mine did have some toppling issues but that was my own fault. I can’t cut a cake in half and have it flat and I had to take the blue layer off because I forgot a red layer. It really is simple, delicious, and gorgeous!
