4th of July Party {Bike Parade Decorating}

The 4th of July is quickly approaching, a Bike and Scooter Decorating Party is a definite MUST and getting the details together is totally SIMPLE!

Set up a ‘Decorate Your Bike’ station for your kids and neighbor kids! They will have a blast decorating their bikes together for the 4th of July parade!  Include red, white, and blue decorations, noise makers, tons of crepe paper, pom poms, bells, and lots of tape!

Set up spot on location with a great backdrop and lots of props for a fun, spontaneous, 4th of July photoshoot!

Slice watermelon in triangles and place a Popsicle stick in the stem with a cupcake liner below!  Super cute and practical!

Make festive Cheesecake Tarts for your guests.  No baking and made with just five simple ingredients.

Cut wide triangles out of any red, white and blue paper.  Fold the triangle in half lengthwise, over the spokes until they meet perfectly.  Attach the paper to the spokes with paperclips, tape, or staples….when the bike is in motion, it’s a wild blur of color.

The classic sound of clicking playing cards in the spokes will announce your arrival to the parade and help increase the excitement for all the spectators.
Make a Mohawk Helmet using pixies, small bells and pom poms, adhered with duct tape inside your child’s bike helmet!


Star Spangled Wavers is a fun craft for kids and a great accessory for a Fourth of July parade.  Glue a dowel between the front and back of felt cut stars and embellish with red, white and blue ribbon!

Cut a hole in the bottom of an empty, open vegetable tin with the label removed using a hammer and nail.  Attach one end of metallic streamers to a piece of duct tape and wrap tightly so the streamers stay together.  Add a string to the top of the duct tape and pull it through the tin can.  Tie a triple knot so the rope with streamers attached stays put.  Attach the rope to string and the string to your child’s parade bicycle!  Let your child decorate the tin with 4th of July stickers!  Your child will love showing of his or her firecrackers throughout the 4th of July parade!

And my sweet B’s favorite part…picking up all the candy during and following the parade!!!
