The Fourth of July is the quintessential summer holiday. On the 4th, Americans flock outside and to their decks to grill, hang out, and celebrate. If you’re planning on hosting a Fourth of July bash at your house this year, here are some great ideas for backyard games and “deckorations” for your outdoor deck!
One way to get people moving is to play capture the flag. Each team tries to capture the others’ flag and bring it back to their territory to win. Use red and blue flags to make the game patriotic. And if you’re trying to beat the heat? Water balloon dodge ball is a fun and refreshing twist on the classic game. Use red, white, and blue water balloons to fit the theme.
For a less physical game, play patriotic bingo. Either print out cards online or design your own. This is perfect for if you have to be indoors but still want to keep the patriotic spirit up!
Red, white, and blue decorations are the quick and easy way to spruce up your outdoor deck. Get plates, cups, silverware and napkins in those colors, or find stars and stripes to add some patriotic patterns! Tying balloons to your deck railings is an easy and inexpensive way to add some fun to your deck, or you could hang pennants or banners too.
