There are several ways to spice up your Independence Day at home. Let’s go through a few below!

Bean Bag Toss Competition

If your family enjoys some friendly competition, setting up a bean bag toss tournament would be a great part of your Fourth of July festivities. If you don’t have a bean bag board, maybe play wiffle ball, four square, croquet or other yard games your family enjoys.

Backyard Picnic and Grill Out

When you think about the Fourth of July, you might think about grilling out, and in Wisconsin that means brats, burgers and other charbroiled favorites accompanied by baked beans, corn on the cob, fresh fruit and lemonade. You can get the whole family involved in preparation, whether it involves shucking corn, preparing dishes or helping turn the burgers.

Campfire in the Backyard

Grab your s’mores supplies, firewood and lawn chairs and head to the backyard to a campfire in the backyard. You can make memories by sharing stories over gooey s’more and campfire snacks. Maybe grab the guitar and strum a few songs for a family singalong!  

Camp in the Backyard

You can close out your 2020 Independence Day by camping out in the backyard. This is a great opportunity for some kids to dip their toes into the wonderful world of camping by sleeping outdoors and learning how to pitch a tent, while also being able to spend the night in a familiar place.

Family Game Night

Grab your Monopoly, cribbage, chess and battleship boards and set up for family game night! Not only will these games offer hours of entertainment, but they also help teach kids math and problem-solving skills.
