Just a week from now is one of the biggest celebrations of the year.

The Fourth of July that is! Here are some ideas for celebrating with a bang!

What are your plans for the Fourth of July? You better start thinking about it since we're just about a week away from the big festivities. If you want to celebrate Independence Day with a bang, take into consideration some of these fun tips my listeners have sent in...

USA Trivia Game:
Reward the person who knows our American history the best with a prize!

Sidewalk Paint: Let the kids become little artists with washable sidewalk paint.

Red, White & Blue Tie-Dye T-shirts: Bring back the art of tie-dye in patriotic style and design your July 4th apparel.

Patriotic Pedicure: Paint your nails in red, white and blue with stars, stripes or polka dots!

Firework Crowns: Twist red, white, silver and blue pipe cleaners into sparkling crowns for kids - and adults.

Hot Dog Topping Contest: Invite friends and family to come up with creative toppings for your hot dog cookout.

Bike, Wagon and Scooter Parade: Decorate your wheels and parade thru the neighborhood with your festive shirts and crowns!

I love this time of year with cookouts and celebrations and sunshine and fun. It takes me back to fond childhood memories when I didn't have a care in the world. Watermelon and popsicles were the ultimate treat, bare feet were the norm, and sparklers were a thrill. Share your Fourth of July or your summer memories and traditions with me this week at D@Delilah.com or call me at 1-888-633-5452.
