Entertaining Yet Affordable Ideas for the 4th of July Weekend
With Independence Day almost here - and well - this years’ holiday weekend looking a little different due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, you may be wondering how to keep yourself and the family entertained. Check out our list of patriotic (and affordable) ideas to enjoy with the whole family — and soon enough you'll be celebrating America's birthday in a true star-spangled way.
Add a delicious splash of red, white, and blue to your menu. You can't celebrate America's birthday without some red, white, and blue desserts! The whole family can join in on the festive decorating — or even compete in a friendly bake-off.
Pro Tip: All those trips to the store can really add up, but with The Perks Checking Account, you could be racking up savings with every visit to the grocery store!
Get crafty. What better way to keep the little ones occupied than with a fun holiday craft? There are a lot of great ideas on Pinterest that offer step-by=step instructions if you need a little inspiration. Plus, they could double as a great 4th of July decor!
Backyard BBQ. Fire up the grill for some good eats! Hot dogs and burgers are essential, of course, but don't forget the tasty apps (and some festive drinks to cool off in the heat).
Bust out the big screen. Skip the standard movie night and set up a screening — and some cozy seating — right out on your lawn, then picking out your favorite All American Movie (Do we hear The Sandlot?). Don't forget the popcorn and the treats you baked earlier in the day!
Experience the great outdoors. Can’t make it to a real campsite this year? Try a little backyard camping instead — just set up a tent (along with a great cookout, of course), and cap off the night with a movie outdoors or scary stories around the “campfire.”
No matter what activity your family chooses, though, you're guaranteed to have a great time —as long as you're spending it with those you love most while creating memories that last a lifetime. From all of us at U.S. Eagle, we wish you and your family a happy and safe Independence Day. And to all those who have served and those who stood beside them to preserve our independence, thank you.
