Fourth of July Party Ideas with Color Powder

Three cheers for the red, white, and blue! There’s no better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with color powder, and with Chameleon Colors’ newest patriotic color powder additions, you can have a festive and colorful holiday that tots, teens, grandparents, and everyone in between will love. 

  1. Red, White, and Blue Color Ball Baseball
    There’s nothing that says “‘Merica” quite like baseball. If you plan to celebrate Independence Day with America’s favorite pastime, consider trading traditional baseballs for Chameleon Colors’ limited-time Red, White, and Navy Blue Color Powder Ball Set! The colored chalk-filled balls will explode with color powder when they connect with the bat! While the balls may not fly as far or as a hard baseball, the softer ball makes it a perfect activity for younger kids to join a smaller game in the yard! 

  2. Sidewalk Chalk Fireworks
    Firework shows are a classic tradition for the Fourth of July, and there’s a reason why: they’re fun, bright, and spread the joy of color! We understand, however, that some families have young children that go to bed early. So, how can you enjoy the festivities during the day? With Chameleon Colors Sidewalk Chalk Paint Kit, of course! You can make vibrant sidewalk chalk fireworks for all your kids to enjoy in a matter of minutes! While there is no right or wrong way to create colorful sidewalk chalk fireworks, we think it’s best to follow the included instructions and then use the paint in squirt bottles. Kids of all ages will be able to participate in the colorful fun.

  3. Neighborhood Color Parade
    Parades are such a fun way to start the celebrations on Independence Day, and color powder is a great idea to make them more unique and fun! Hosting a neighborhood color parade is a great way to show off our nation’s colors in style. Instead of squirting water or throwing candy, use color powder! (Or all three!) Have everyone wear white, and then throw blue and red color powder in your parade and you’ll see why they call it “America the Beautiful!” For an easy way to use color powder in a color parade, try Chameleon Colors’ limited edition Red, White and Navy Blue Individual Packs! 

  4. Color Run Fundraiser for Troops
    Many cities around the country host charity races to raise money for special causes around the 4th of July. A fun way to raise money for our troops is a color run! We have all the color options you’ll need to host a patriotic color run with our bulk color powders. It’s a great way to get your community involved in a special and colorful way to remember the sacrifice of freedom. Check out our blog post, How to Plan a Color Run, for more information on how to design a color run race route, order the powder, fundraise, and organize your event. Our event specialists are also happy to help! Call us at 801-528-1250 for free customized help for your event. 

  5. Patriotic Photoshoot
    Show off America’s colors with artistic flair. Patriotic photoshoots are a fun way to highlight red, white, and blue! Our color powder is perfect for vibrant color powder photo shoots for gymnasts, dancers, and athletes! Or you can have a color powder photography session for family pictures, senior photos, or even engagements. Our color powder is non-toxic and environmentally friendly, so our color powder is safe for kids and pets! Our limited-edition patriotic 12 pack is perfect for color powder photography sessions. The possibilities are endless, and we’ve seen some very creative photos that we frequently share on our Instagram page.
