Independence Day at Nana’s

In this post: Fourth of July crafts, activities, and snacks!

Hello, dear ones! A lot is happening in the world (especially in Jerusalem). I hope you get a chance to check out my Rapture posts: http://amberdover.com/category/encouragement/the-return-of-jesus/

Moving on…we celebrated Independence Day with my grandparents but then again the following weekend with my Mom. Mom put together a fun afternoon/evening of activities. So most of these ideas were Mom’s ideas she gathered from Pinterest. I’ll post the links I can find. Here’s how we celebrated:

  • Shucking corn- So this wasn’t planned. Ha! Supper was taking a bit longer to get together. So we kept the kids busy by having them help.
