Hello friends! Today, I have another 4th of July project to share with you! It's an acrylic mini album that I made last year. I never made it into a kit but after receiving many requests for the instructions ... I've decided to add them to the shop along with the clear acrylic album! Don't you love Fridays?
This all-American project is perfect for your fun weekend photos. Need a few ideas of some July 4th activities? Keep scrolling to read some suggestions and see the inside of this cutie!
I made this with a clear 6x6 inch acrylic album and Doodlebug's adorable Land That I Love Collection.
Now for the fun activities!
Gather the neighbors for a fun block party. Have a cookout and be creative with you food choices. Plan for some red, white and blue colored treats like cupcakes, cookies, candies, an ice cream bar or mini pies (hmmm, pie eating contest!).
Make some fun DIY patriotic decorations like centerpieces, a wreath, or hang some flags in the trees. Be sure to take
photos of everything.
Plan a few outdoor games in the yard
like volleyball, horse shoes, cornhole, water balloons or ... baseball (ya can’t get more
American than baseball!). Set up a sprinkler for the littles to play in.
Spend the day (or the weekend) at the beach. Enjoy the sunshine, go swimming, relax on a float, look for seashells, lounge under an umbrella, have a picnic or BBQ and spend time with family or friends.
As the evening arrives, create a beach side bonfire,
roast hot dogs, make smores, and light some sparklers or fireworks.
live near a lake - spend the afternoon boating, fishing or tubing.
Attend a small town festival or a parade. Parades are such a fun event and a great way to show your patriotism. I mean, who doesn't love a marching band, decorative floats, fun costumes and huge balloons? The clowns ... mmmm, they can be hit or miss depending on who you talk to, lol. But what great memories and pictures you'll have!
And last but not least ... the evening's fireworks. Look online for the local display or create your own in the backyard and take pictures.
