Homemade face paint
If you’re immersed in the idea of a Fourth July party, get back to basics with some homemade face paint! This is a way to make every child enjoy their epic July 4th party without spending a lot of money. You can create patriotic homemade face paint colors with materials you may already have, and children can take turns painting the faces of their family members. Then, if you want to keep it clean, wash everything with a water balloon fight!
Flour star for lawn
Decorating your garden with stars and stripes is a great way to show off your patriotism! This is one of our long-time favorites, not only because it’s so cute, but also because it’s an easy way to keep the kids busy while we clean the house.
All you need is some templates, flour, and a flour sieve to create cute star shapes all over your page. Our kids have fun making a mess, and this is a great way to encourage them to make a mess in a good way!
Add a little extra fun with a big $5 glowing star for the patio , or this giant luminous star for the entire front yard! Make it patriotic with red, white, and blue chain lights or programmable outdoor chain lights.
Create a collage of freedom
Making art is the perfect way to celebrate your freedom! There are different ways to create a collage of freedom, as all you really need to do is collect all your red, white, and blue crafting gear and some glue and tear them all into a piece of paper.
You can even make it in the form of a birthday card to celebrate America’s birthday. You can place this craft inside or outside at a picnic table, however it’s a fun way to include creative guests!
Popcorn Relay Race
Kids of all ages enjoy relay racing! Bringing some snacks to your activity is always a good idea. The popcorn relay race is a classic summer party that helps every guest have fun! Provide supplies along with your lawn games so your party guests are ready to play. This game is also very easy to set up anywhere, so if you’re hanging out in a local park or in your front yard, you can play it with your friends and family!

American flag photo background
What’s more fun than a photo booth? Place the American flag in your party area and show your guests how to get the right angle to be surrounded by stars and stripes! This is one of the most patriotic ideas available that will give your guests a fun little photo souvenir to preserve memories!
You can even take slow-motion videos of your guests throwing water balloons at each other. My friends love to take family photos in front of us!
Get creative with Glow Sticks
Spending time with family is fun, but sometimes you may find your party putting to sleep between dinner and fireworks. The good news is that you can find all sorts of things to do with glowing sticks at pool parties!
