Celebrate with Fourth of July activities for the whole family. These five activities will help your family have fun as you celebrate the Fourth of July!
This is such a fun holiday to add in some extra fun to. These activities are great for the day of, the week of, or even one a day! We love celebrating with Fourth of July activities with all of the red, white, and blue. Have fun, be flexible, and get creative!
The purpose of the Summer Weekly Activities series is to provide busy moms with some simple and fun themed activities for summer. Instead of trying to do all of the things every single day, I have found it to be helpful and freeing to do one fun activity a day. Some weeks we may do all five activities and other weeks just one, but having a list of activities on hand has helped us thrive during the summer.
If you want all 11 weeks of summer activities, you can purchase the entire PDF pack for $10 HERE in my shop. It also includes some bonuses!
