Lawn Decor:
Stars Galore!

What you’ll need:

  • cans of spray paint, we used red, white, and blue

  • cardboard to cut out a star shape

  • knife or kitchen shears to cut the star shape out of the cardboard

Thoughts on spray paint:

  • If there are concerns of using regular spray paint on grass, this kind of spray paint was made with the intention of it being used on athletic fields, so most likely also safe for your lawn.

  • It does behave differently than regular spray paint. For example, it washes off of your fingers much more easily. You also do need to let it dry for a few hours before allowing people to walk on it.

  • It’s also cool because the nozzle is different than regular spray paint nozzles. You can totally invert the can and the paint comes straight out the top.

Lawn Game:

Red, White, and Blue Tag!

Kids and adults alike, will have extra energy after enjoying dessert, so help them burn it off with a fun game of red, white, and blue tag. Depending on your group size, designate two to four to be "it." Let all other players select a red, white, or blue token (like leis, ribbons, poker chips, etc.) to run around. When "it" tags a player, the player hands over their token. The first "it" to collect an item in every color wins!


Happy 4th of July!

Scott and Family
