The more the merrier. And The Fourth of July is no different. Who doesn’t love spending this holiday surrounded by friends and family? Spice up your Fourth of July by throwing a party or hosting a picnic and wow your guests with some fun and patriotic games that will entertain all ages!
Patriotic Balloon Pop
Blow up a bunch of red, white, and blue balloons, and place a note saying “You Win!” in one of the balloons. Have guests pop the balloons to find the note and win a prize.
After all, baseball is America’s favorite pastime. Get everyone involved in a baseball game. Encourage those who aren’t playing to be cheerleaders or coaches for the younger children.
Water Balloon Dodgeball
It’s always a scorcher on the Fourth, so cool everyone down with some water balloon dodgeball. Divide the guests into two teams and throw red, white, and blue balloons at each other. If you’re hit, then you’re out. The last man standing is the winner!
Who says you can only dress up on Halloween? Have your guests arrive in their best Independence Day costume and have everyone vote for the best dressed and most creative.
American History Trivia
Divide your guests into teams and challenge everyone with trivia on American history. Don’t forget to throw some easy ones in there so the kids can stay excited and involved as well!
Watermelon Eating Contest
Who doesn’t love watermelon? Cut some watermelons into fourths and lay them on the table. Have your guests place their hands behind their backs and eat their watermelon without their hands. The first to finish wins!
