4 fun ways to celebrate the 4th of July- click for patriotic recipes, crafts, and activities!Hello all you patriotic ladies! The Fourth of July is by far one of my favorite holidays. My birthday is on July 1st and so it’s like a celebration all the way through! (Birthday posts coming soon😉!)  I love celebrating the Fourth of July. I’m super patriotic, so I love going all out! There are so many ways to celebrate, but sometimes I just need some inspiration on some things to do. It’s so fun to stick with traditions, but maybe you want something new this year. Some of the things listed are classic must-do’s and others are little creative!  I rounded up 4 fun things to do for the 4th of July this year!

4 Fun Things to do for The 4th of July

You see what I did there? 🤓

1 | Eat American Foods

What better way to celebrate America by eating the best true American foods?! Plus it gives you an excuse to have a cheat day.🙃 My mouth is just watering thinking about all of the delicious food to come!

Here are a few yummy things to eat on the day:

I-Hop Berry Berry Banana French Toast

So, technically French Toast isn’t “American”, but it’s Patriotic if you put strawberries, blueberries, bananas, and powdered sugar on them to make red, white, and blue! You can totally go to I-Hop and get this, or just make some yourself!

Cherry Galette with Cookie Butter

Mmm! Isn’t this so cute for the Fourth? Rachel from Lipstickandgelato.com created this All-American cherry deliciousness for you guys. Find the recipe here.

Mini Ketogenic Strawberry Cheesecakes

Boy, do I love cheesecake! Yvonne from thehealingspoon.com made this red, white, and blue cheesecakes that look divine! Find the recipe here.



This is so classic and something I personally look forward to every single year. Grilling takes me back to my dad at the grill, flipping burgers and steak and hot dogs. Good times! If you don’t have a grill(or are just too lazy this year) do the next best thing and buy a burger! Nothing says American better than some good meat.

And while you’re out there celebrating this holiday, try your best to be with your family! America is founded on principles such as the family, and we need to keep that strong- plus it’s more fun that way! This year it’s just me and Josh, but  do what you can to have a good time celebrating and remembering those who’ve died for this country.

 I want to give a big thank you to all the bloggers who were willing to link up with me in this post! You guys rock!
