GET READY TO PARTY! {INDEPENDENCE DAY INSPIRATION}


Hey hey everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend. We got a bit of yard work done, finally went to see Jurassic World (we enjoyed it!), spent some time with family, and had a great day at church yesterday.  

I can't believe that it's time to plan for the Fourth of July (didn't we just open Christmas presents yesterday?!?), but ready or not, it's here this weekend!  The Fourth is one of my family's favorite holidays, and this year I'd like to add in a few new ideas to our usual set-up.  I found the cutest things as I was searching, and thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you today.  They're all pretty simple, so you'll have plenty of time this week if you want to try something new, too.

I'm planning to print these for our family gathering this weekend.  I'm thinking a flag hung on the fence in the back yard will be the perfect back drop!

I'm pretty sure the kids would go crazy for this fun night-time game while waiting for the fireworks to begin, and there are several other fun glow in the dark game ideas included as well.
