Things To Do On July 4th

The 4th of July is almost here! This Independence Day will be different than any other, so you have to plan accordingly. Many of us will be enjoying this holiday at home and are looking for ways to shake off the cabin fever. Since the beginning of time, games have been used to pass the time, entertain, and form social bonds. With respect to our holiday, let Yescom help you create the perfect memory with these patriotic games and activities. 

Brief History of Independence Day 

Traditionally, Independence Day or the 4th of July is the time where Americans celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence. This historical document liberated the 13 American colonies from British rule. Annually, the holiday is usually commemorated with fireworks, barbecues, picnics, carnivals, fairs, and other outdoor gatherings and activities. 

Due to recent events, celebrating July 4th 2020 will be one to remember. We may not be able to gather like we did in the past, but there are many activities and games that can be played at home. 

Have A Deep Fried Barbeque 

Nothing is more American than deep fried barbeque! French fries and corn dogs are typical American dishes, but with your very own high quality deep fryer your possibilities are endless. Experiment with your deep fryer! Some unexpected delights include: 

  • Pizza slices
  • Crab meat
  • Ice cream 
  • Strawberries 
  • Oreos 
  • Doughnuts 

Backyard Camping Trip

 The day doesn't have to end just because the sun goes down. Enjoy the outdoors all night long with a backyard camping trip! Roast marshmallows around a fire, tell spooky stories, and discover constellations with the ones you love the most but do it in style. Use an off the ground camping tent with wide mesh windows so you can appreciate nature but protect yourself from mosquitoes and other pests. 

Patriotic Games

Keeping within the theme of Independence Day, there are many trivia and history inspired games you can play. From answering history questions to playing Wheel of Fortune, a customizable WinSpin Prize Wheel is a great way to keep the fun going all day! Color code the panels red, white, and blue and offer different challenges! 



Use a projector screen and projector to take patriotic photographs and play Independence Day themed games. Watch historical movies or big time blockbusters the entire family can enjoy! Projectors are also great when used with sporting video games such as baseball, fishing, and bowling.
