This Independence Day invite your friends over for a picnic filled with patriotic games. Here are a few traditional favorites and new ways to enjoy this summertime holiday. Easy, and inexpensive to pull off, they’re perfect for getting everyone out of the house and into the yard.
1. July 4th Coffee Can Stilts Racing
Each team has to have 1 red and 1 blue member come to the finished line to be the winner team. Make sure you pick cans sturdy enough to support your weight . We’ve made that mistake and that ended in a boo-boo and a band-aid. With the right equipment, these stilts are not only fun crafts to make with kids because they require very little time and focus, but they also provide an outdoor activity at no cost to you and all family members!
2. Red & Blue Giant Foot Game
Not much things need to be said about this simple game. Prepare 2 pairs of giant foots, big enough for 3 adults to step on, you could make from wood pallet or just cheap card board material. It doesn’t matter if the foot is broken a little bit, the key is all 3 members come to the finished line with their giant foots intact though!
3. Red, white, and blue tag
Give each competitor one token of each color. When the whistle blows, the game starts! Challenge players to be the first to gather one red, one white, and one blue token by tagging other players. This game is perfect outdoor fun for young kids.
4. Patriotic Bottle Ring Toss
The winner [you could play in team which is so much more fun lol] is the one who have 2 rings [1 red ring & 1 blue ring] being toss into 1 single bottle. How hard could that be, right?

5. Flag Tag Relay
This is a game where you race to see who can get the flag first, bring the flag with you while come back to the start line, tag another member and he/she will do the same job as you did. Repeat the routine until all your flags are collected. First team completes the task is the winner.
Recommended Number of Players/Teams: Two teams, unlimited amount of players
6. Water balloon dodge ball
Divide up the group into two teams and fill up some red, white, and blue water balloons. If you get hit, you’re out. The last one standing wins!
