What is everyone doing for the 4th of July. We are planning the annual cook out on the 4th for residents, we will have lemonaide and Watermellon on the 3rd. I would like different ideas, something different we can not do fireworks.

You could make fireworks with your population out of cardboard from the paper towel or toilet paper rolls. You’ll need red, blue, white construction paper, pipe cleaners, and star stickers. You can utilize the fireworks they create as centerpieces for your table on the day of your event. Patriotic sing-alongs and confetti poppers might be a good addition to your event. Typically we do a resident and family barbecue with entertainment since we’re still socially distancing and not allowing visitation, we’re brainstorming ideas. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them. I hope my ideas are helpful to you.

Pam another simple idea is to play patriotic music and have the residents draw fireworks while listening very easy to do

Friday, SAturday and sunday we had the following.
I did ice cream in cones.
We had the karoke, singing patriotic songs and the residents loved this. We have since done other types of music also.
We had watermelon and lemonaide social on front porch.
thank you for all the ideas.
We also did a firework craft and displayed it for ever one to see them.
