With Independence Day fast approaching and most of us trying to stay at home, you may be wondering how to celebrate the most patriotic holiday of them all without hosting a large gathering or cookout. That’s why we put together this list of creative, fun ways to celebrate Fourth of July at home with your family.
Highlight the Declaration of Independence
While we don’t recommend taking an actual highlighter to the proclamation of our nation’s independence, giving it a dramatic reading could be a fun way to recognize its historical significance. Gathering the family and divvying up passages to read is sure to remind everyone that one simple document can change the world.
Get the kids involved
On the surface, history might seem boring to kids. However, framing a learning experience about the origins of America as a fun game show is a great way to help your children connect with their country’s legacy. You can even introduce Fourth of July-themed treats as rewards for getting the right answers.
Watch a well-themed movie
Sitting down with your family for a movie night — complete with delicious food, naturally — is the perfect way to end a Fourth of July spent at home. You can opt for a classic war film, superhero fare like Captain America, an action flick like Independence Day, or a family-friendly adventure like National Treasure.
No matter how you choose to celebrate the Fourth of July at home in Pittsburgh, all of us here at Shults Ford of Harmarville would like to wish you a happy, safe Independence Day.
