The Fourth of July is almost here. Independence Day means family gatherings, food and decorations. July is an amazing time, the middle of summer; marked by the outdoors, warm nights and fireworks in the evening air. Throughout the country memories are made in very separate locations and yet have much in common with one another, from helping a father with the grill in Seattle to chasing fireflies with neighbors in the Appalachians or waving a flag at a parade in Phoenix.
Creating these memories alongside friends and family can be one of the best inspirations for celebrating and celebrations are often the best time to play music! A perfect playlist fits the mood and rhythm of the occasion and inspire memories down the road for all those listening. The playlist below may just help create those moments for the guests on your special day.
The above is just a start – can you think of more songs about American cities? Using this list, craft your own collection to inspire mid-summer memories.
The late spring season into early summer can bring unexpected rainy days. If you are home with the kids all day or after school, the rain can make time stand still before dinner and bedtime. If it’s a weekend day, kids can really get antsy sitting indoors for hours on end. Here are a few fun indoor activities to enjoy with kids if you are caught with a rainy day outside.
Even if your kids are young, you can make this activity fun for them. Pick a cookie or other baked good recipe and get your aprons on. Try a family recipe from Grandma’s recipe box and tell the kids your favorite stories from growing up. Or, pick a fun recipe like “Kitchen Sink Cookies” and have the kids pick any ingredients they want to add to a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe. Anything from coconut flakes, peanut butter chips, walnuts, craisins or raisins will be tasty and fun for the kids to bake with.
If your kids are into crafting, ask them to search Pinterest boards to find an easy afternoon craft. Set up the kitchen table with any and all crafting supplies and encourage them to make something for the playroom or their bedrooms. This will get their creative juices flowing and pass a couple hours of bad weather any day.
Charades or board games
Kids love to play charades, so write down several fun characters to play out, cut them up and play a few rounds of charades. Then, grab some board games suitable for kids, set out snacks and blankets and gather around the family room table for an afternoon of games.
Movie and a snack
If it’s a particularly gloomy or lazy day, invite the kids to the family room or basement for an afternoon of movies, popcorn, candy and cuddling. Have them put on their comfy PJs and agree on a movie or two to pass the time.
