Brain-Racking Events of Fourth July

Aug 17, 2007
A 4th July party is a great opportunity to share a good time with your child and with their friends group. Remember, you need to have a Hugh selection of games and activities to fill up those 3 hours of party full of fun and excitement. Some party games tips are listed below to have a great 4th July party.

The great outdoors is the ideal place for this next game which is a trifle wet. Put to float a large number of small corks in a tub of water. It is well to use a tub or at least a large dishpan so that the corks cannot be easily pushed against the bottom. Give a contestant a pin and tell him to spear as many corks as he can in three minutes. The cork must not be touched by hand, neither may it touch the sides of the pan while being harpooned.

If your party is large and your tub ample, two players can be spearing at the same time. But don't pass out pins to the players until they are ready for their turn at the tub, or some rascally lad will be sure to harpoon a guest or two.

In a free-for-all picnic spirit let "Bombs" be the next game. Once again divide your guests into two groups of equal number. Have the two teams line up facing each other, about eight or ten feet apart. Give each player a toy balloon and when the game starts, the player at the head of each line must inflate his balloon until it bursts. The next in line then does the same, and so on down the line. No cheating is allowed. The second player must wait to blow up his balloon until the first man's balloon has popped. The group first popping all its balloons wins. This breath-taking game provides plenty of noise to satisfy the most noise-thirsty.

By this time even the liveliest will be ready to sit down for a quiet game. Provide each one with a card and pencil and announce that ten minutes will be allowed for the players to list as many states in the United States as they can. Even fairly young children are familiar with most of the states in the Union and will enjoy the contest. If your group is unusually sharp, ask them to list the capitals of each state.

During this brain-racking event, you will have an excellent opportunity to set out the picnic table. Truly American food will be welcome at this Picnic Party, especially if there is plenty of it. So bring on the hot dogs and toasted buns, a big bowl of potato salad, or potato chips for those who prefer them, pickles, and perhaps a casserole of hot baked beans. Finish off this menu with "pinwheel" cake, commonly recognized as a slice of jelly roll, and ice-cream cones.

For fun and activities you can have games which is related to the Country, history, some great man of America etc and also add some patriotic music for better result. Do not forget to include a firework at the end of the party.
