Fun Activities for the 4th of July using Patriotic Candy

The next big excuse for a celebration approaches in the form of our nation’s independence! Food, fireworks, and fun are meant to be had. Here are a few ideas for the kids:

Red, White, and Blue Candy Corn |

Hide Candy in a Hay Bale

The amount of hay you need might vary depending on how many people want to participate. Mark out a 10’x10’ area. Spread out the hay so it is easy for children to maneuver. Hide small prizes and candy like patriotic Tootsie Pops for children to search for. Limit the number of children who can go at a time so it is not too crowded. Kids will have a blast searching through the hay to find a prize!

Water Balloon Fight

It goes without saying the celebrating the 4th of July is usually hot. If you don’t have access to a pool, you can set up a sprinkler for kids to play in. If you want to make it more of a competition with yummy candy prizes, divide the kids in teams and prepare for a water balloon fights!

Relay Race

The type of relay race is up to you, but it could include balancing candy on a spoon (instead of the classic egg), a dress up relay, crab walking, or a combination of all three! Have candy bags filled with patriotic candy at the ready for the winners and keep some extra treats on hand for everyone so it is more about the fun instead of the competition.

However you decided to celebrate, remember that this is a day to appreciate all of our freedoms.  Find all the patriotic candy you need at!
