Party Games and Activities
Patriotic Party Games and Patriotic Party Activities. Well you can always have a parade! Or….


  • Have all of the kids make top hats that will fit them, and have a decorating contest (awarding a different prize to all kids- "most colorful", "most elaborate", most creative", etc.). Then have a parade around the neighborhood (wearing the new hats) to a famous march.
  • Don't forget the universal bike parade where kids use crepe paper and the like to decorate their bikes to show off in the neighborhood. Watching a parade is hard work, so give the adults a folding fan.
  • Another decorating contest that you can have for the kids is a "decorate your own placemat" contest. This adds to the overall decoration, as well as giving the kids something to do to keep them busy.
  • Have your own baseball game! Divide guests into teams and play ball! Or you can have an entire Olympiad! The games don't have to be traditional ones either. You can have cookie eating contests and fun relay races or other crazy games.
  • And yes we have more patriotic party games for your enjoyment.

Did You Know?

  • Sure there were 13 but can you name them? So what were the original 13 colonies? Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts Bay, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Virginia
  • What’s in a name? Eleven places have "independence" in their name. The biggest is Independence, Missouri, with 113,288 residents. Five places have "freedom." In their name. Not as big as Independence the largest is Freedom, California, with 6,000 residents. And what would Mel Gibson think about there being only one place named "patriot" — Patriot, Indiana, with a population of 202.
  • That smells good. Where did you get it? Millions of us will barbecue on summer holidays this year. We’ll eat millions of pounds of wonderful food. Where will it come from? About 16% of the beef on your backyard grill will come from Texas. About 1-in-4 of the hot dogs and ribs enjoyed on July 4th will come from Iowa. Georgia, Arkansas, Alabama, North Carolina and Mississippi will raise over half of the chicken barbecued this year.
  • Betsy Ross sewed it, but who designed the first U.S. flag? The answer, according to the experts at the Betsy Ross house, is that it was possibly designed by Francis Hopkinson, a New Jersey delegate to the Continental Congress and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The stars on the flag were in a circle so that no one colony would be viewed above another. It is reported that George Washington said, "Let the 13 stars in a circle stand as a new constellation in the heavens."
