July 4th Kids' Activity That Will Snap, Crackle, and Pop!

Julie from Crowing Details is here today to share how she put together a fantastic kids' activity station for July 4th that will delight your kids! She also designed a free printables to go along with it! 

Even though my 3 little ones are still too young for a big fireworks show, I still like to make July 4th fun and exciting for them. I also like to find a way to entertain the adults at my BBQ.

Red, White & Blue Pretzel Rods

Red, white, and blue pretzel rods, a perfect treat for your July 4th parties! | CatchMyParty.com

When I think of July 4th, I think about being a kid and heading to the Jersey Shore with my family. I grew up in NJ but we didn't go "down the shore" often, maybe once a summer. It was special.

I loved the Jersey Shore, it felt so alive. It wasn't snooty, like other east coast beaches. It was tacky, with lots of people with bad hair and bad accents, and yes, I was one of them. (But I only discovered that years later when I moved away.)

Summer BBQ Tiered Serving Tray DIY

I wanted to make a quick and easy tiered serving tray that would look great at any outdoor summer BBQ! I made this in about five minutes using some plastic SOLO Squared plates and bowls, two shot glasses (you can use small candle stick holders instead), and some Glue Dots. I love how picnic-y and fun it turned out!
