Family Fun 4th of July Games

Keep things fun with these 4th of July games the entire family will enjoy.

1. Water Balloon Toss It’s a warm-weather classic. Teams of two toss water balloons back and forth. Have the distance between the pair increase with each turn. The last team standing with an intact water balloon wins. If the big kids are feeling more competitive, save some balloons for a game of dodgeball. We recommend this jumbo pack of self-sealing water balloons that let you fill up 100 balloons in under a minute.

2. Flag Hunt Instead of eggs, hide tiny flags around the yard or picnic grounds for the kids to find. Mark one of the flags and give the finder a special prize.

3. Red, White and Blue Marshmallow Golf Marshmallows—they’re not just for s’mores anymore. Divide a bag of jumbo marshmallows into three groups, then use food coloring to dye one group red and one group blue. Keep the third group white. Once the ‘mallows dry, let each player tee one up and swing away using a golf club or hockey stick. The participant who hits their marshmallow the farthest wins. Have one prize for the kids and one for the adults.

4. Bean Bag Toss

The object of the game is to try to toss a bean bag into one of the 3 target holes. Play continues until one player or team reaches 21 points exactly after all 6 bean bags have been tossed in any one round. If a team/player goes over 21 points in any one round, no points are scored. 21 points exactly wins the round.

5. Ring Toss

The first player throws two rings of the same color, one at a time, at the opposite stake. The second player then throws his two rings which are of the other color. Players play in the same order throughout the game. After throwing at one stake, players throw at the other stake, and alternate stakes on each turn.
