If you’re like us, all of the firework shows, parades, and fairs around our county have been cancelled! Even Minor League Baseball was cancelled! ): So we are scrambling last minute to come up with ideas to celebrate at home! We planned on staying in our car to watch the fireworks and have snacks to stay away from everyone, but that can’t happen either now! Thanks AGAIN covid-19 for ruining another celebration this year! Here are some fun, easy, last minute ideas to make the 4th of July still feel special at home!
We found these fun ideas on Pinterest! Head over to our 4th of July Board for all of the below ideas and the links to the original post && get more ideas!!
