Don't forget to print out a few printable patriotic games for your Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, and President's Day Celebration Parties. They are not very expensive so even if you don't end up using them this time, you will have unlimited printouts for 90 days which takes you way past Labor Day.
We love to have these games on hand just in case … just in case it rains, just in case the little kids (or the big kids) get antsy, just in case your party extends well into the evening after the sun goes down and the lawn games get put away. Printable games are also a perfect evening activity when camping since they are light weight and easy to transport. Consider printing on recycled paper. Additionally, if you are looking for classroom activities for a patriotic school party, these are both educational and fun.
All six of these printable patriotic games will keep your guests guessing and laughing plus you can personalize all of them.

My name is Samantha and I am a cookie fanatic. If I have a choice of any treat, I will always choose a cookie. Imagine my delight when a box arrived on my desk at work filled with cookies. These great treats arrived packaged in a colorfully designed box that immediately put a smile on my face. A dozen sugar cookies covered in white icing with six different colored smiley faces came packed in a sealed plastic container that actually kept the cookies fresh for weeks. In addition to the cookies the box included directions on how to best eat the cookies. The directions recommended heating them in the microwave for 10 seconds. After taking my first bite, I decided an extra 10 seconds would take the cookies from good to outstanding. In fact, my boss, initially a bit iffy about the cookies, really liked them once they were warmed up. I can honestly say Smiley Cookies are now my new favorite cookies. I would absolutely recommend them to all my friends.
These fun, scrumptious treats are available in a variety of different colors and shapes. Chose from stars, flowers, hearts, and more to make a basketful of yummy delights. You can also create your own cookie and choose the shape and color of the icing and smiley face. Smiley Cookies are long lasting and extremely versatile; they make excellent birthday presents, “get well soon” goodies, thank you gifts, and are overall great for any party or holiday. They would also be a fantastic take-home party favor treat for guests – just put them out near the door on a large smile face plate and let your guests grab them as they leave the party. Priced starting at just $12.99 / dozen these cookies are both reasonable and delicious. Make it a yummy day!
