4th of July Family Home Evening

This is a really great family home evening idea that I found on one of my favorite blogs, Chocolate on my Cranium. I LOVED the visual of turning the water different colors to represent the colors on our flag and the primary songs you sing about each color. Make sure you check it out, it is all ready to go, all you have to do is print it out! Get the full family home evening HERE.

After we spoke about America being the promised land and how blessed we are we focused on the flag and talked about some fun things we do on the 4th. Of course, Fireworks!! So this is what we did for a little craft

All you do is get some acrylic paint, water it down A LOT (I think that was my downfall, not quite enough water :) and then put some drops on a piece of paper. Then you give the kiddos straws and when the blow on the paint it makes these cute little fireworks. Pretty fun!!
And what is FHE without a fun, themed dessert?

Mine didn't look quite that professional, but you get the idea :) All I did was make a yellow cake, top it with cool whip and then use blueberries and strawberries to decorate! Since I am on a health kick right now it would also be yummy to do yogurt parfaits with layers of vanilla yogurt, blueberries and strawberries :) Happy 4th everyone, and God Bless America!!
