Kids gather on our lawn with their bikes. We usually try to gather some supplies, but many parents provide additional decorations. Most of our decorations are pretty random: flags, streamers, blue painters tape, and we’ve even had white wedding decorations! Anything Red, White, and Blue works.
We usually have our normal fare of cookout food, but it’s always fun to end it with some Patriotic Fruit Kabobs (blueberries, raspberries or strawberries, and a marshmallow) and s’mores. In lieu of a portable fire pit, we used this awesome log. My neighbor found it at Wegmans or you can find something similar here.
