Here are some great activities to make/do at your Fourth of July celebrations this weekend.
We always grew up having an amazing Old Fashioned 24th of July celebration with our family (this is a Utah/Mormon holiday). It was truly amazing. So, last year we put together our own carnival, for our children.
I think you can figure out how to make each of these activities, but incase you can’t you can find tutorials for all of them, here! This is a post about our carnival last year.
The above picture is a Water Bottle Bowling Game. It has a super cute placemat that you have to go check out!
Fun action shot of my Nephew throwing the dart at the balloons! This is a simple game to put together that I love the look of!
Bean Bag Toss Game. With homemade beanbags that each have a patriotic word embroidered onto them! The game itself is made from a box! Are you getting that we wanted the games to be part of the decoration?
Homemade Rubber Band Shooters! Remember those from your childhood? They are super easy to make! Katrina made enough of these for each cousin to have one! They are so much fun! We just shot empty cans and bottles with them.
How about some Cork Guns! These are made out of wood, pvc pipe, string, and a cork!
Tin Can Stompers are another super easy yet effective activity!
Tin Can Knock Down! We used a ball that you get wet, just to keep water flying around the whole yard!
Hope this gives you some inspiration for old fashioned carnival games you can make yourself, from mostly things that you already have around the house!
