2. Prepare your own red, white and blue decoration explosion.
Decorating your house in a patriotic color will definitely make the holiday more enjoyable. Decorate your yard, patio, or even your home's exterior in a 4th of July theme. Beyond the colors of the American flag, there's plenty of iconography to draw on as you create your patriotic presentation: Uncle Sam, bald eagles and, of course, stars and stripes.

Everyone will be happy receiving a lovely gift on the national holiday. On the national holiday, don’t forget to buy your children and family a classic American flag T-shirt. Nothing says it's Independence Day better than rocking an American flag shirt with your whole family!
4. Have a backyard cookout
There’s nothing better than the smell of Barbecue. A backyard cookout is the perfect stay-at-home activity during quarantine time, so throw some hot dogs, hamburgers or whatever your go-to cookout food is on the grill and have a feast. Don’t forget all the fixins’ and sides like potato salad, fruit salad and cold brews for the parents. After the feast? Definitely some ice cream for dessert!
5. Have a Movie Day
Sometimes a quiet day watching movies is a great way to spend the 4th of July, especially when it is raining. So, make sure to look out fun movies for them to watch. You can watch classics from their youth they might want to watch, or you can put a patriotic spin on it with some all-American classics like Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Lincoln, or Independence Day!
