Last-Minute Ideas for the Fourth of July


Tuesday seems like a weird day for a holiday, doesn’t it? If you work, you probably want to take Monday off. If you plan on traveling and want to see fireworks, you might need Wednesday off, too. Or maybe you’ve forgotten Tuesday is a holiday at all.

(Or, like me, you’ve realized there are no camps this week because of the holiday and thus you are going to have four kids running/crawling around your house all week except for a rogue dentist appointment.)

If you’re looking for local fireworks and events, check out our Independence Day Events post. But for a few fun at-home activities and recipes, I’ve got you covered.

You might need to make a quick run to the store today, but I hope these ideas will get you through tomorrow — and maybe Labor Day, too! Enjoy the holiday, and let us know how you’re spending it in the comments.

I am a stay-at-home mom to four kids (ages 13, 11, 8, and 5) - as well as a freelance writer and editor. We live on campus at Baylor School, where my husband teaches. After living in Ohio, Indiana, and Virginia, Tennessee is home and has been for 17+ years. I do some freelance writing and editing when I am not chasing the preschooler, keeping my 8-year-old from climbing the curtains, listening to my 11-year-old talk about Minecraft, or buying way too much (SALE!) clothing for my 13-year-old daughter.
