On the 4th of July, there's nothing better than grillin' and chillin' with friends. As an adult, you may want nothing more than to eat barbecue and drink sangria until the sun goes down. If you have kids, however, you may need to have some other activities on the agenda. You see, chillin' isn't exactly part of their vocabulary, and you're going to have to use a little more creativity to keep them entertained. This is why you need to have plenty of 4th of July games for kids in your arsenal that will keep your kids from getting bored.
Weather permitting, you can take advantage of the outdoors to let your little ones enjoy classic picnic games like the potato sack race and the bean bag toss. And if you're not afraid of getting a little wet, a game of water balloon baseball can be a fun new twist on America's pastime.
It doesn't have to cost a lot to entertain your kids this 4th of July. You can find most of the materials you need to play these games at your local dollar store. And if you want to keep your kids from melting down while waiting for the fireworks, you may want to try a few.
