Fourth of July is tomorrow. Why not make some red, white and blue treats?
Grab your kids and have them help you put the treats together! They will have fun in the kitchen and get to look forward to enjoying the fruits of their labor. These recipes should be fairly easy and not heat the house too much. We definitely don’t want that!
- A slushie to keep you cool
- Adult only cherries
- Red, white and blue oreos
- Ice. Cream. Cake. Pops. Enough said
Want to keep the little ones busy during the party tomorrow? Create an arts and crafts station and put them to work!
- A confetti launcher? I kind of want to make one too!
- A firework ring
- Make the chalk than have a hopscotch off a few hours later!
- Fun Fourth of July hats!
And of course… don’t forget to capture all the fun with your camera!
- Keep your elbows tucked or lean on a solid surface to steady yourself.
- Try not to center your subject! The rule of thirds is an easy to follow layout and most cameras have an option to turn the grid on!
- Get the big picture. Step back and take some scene setting images.
- But remember to get the details too. Get in close to further tell your story.
