By now you should have your families 4th of July schedule all planned out. Every minute counts on the 4th so writing down all the events and the transitions between them are so vital to a successful Independence Day. If you haven’t worked on your 4th of July plan yet, then Texas Treats is here to help you make this 4th of July an unforgettable one for you and your family.
First, you have to pick a parade that will be sure to make your kids eyes light up. The best 4th of July parades are the small neighborhood ones, where the pageantry is organic and your good friend is the one pulling the float with his truck. The Lakewood Parade in Dallas, Texas is one of those well-done parades that puts a smile on everyones face. It’s always smart to bring along a little snack as you watch the parade roll by. Try our Texas Treats Longhorn Trail Mix, full of flavor our Longhorn Trail Mix combines jalapeño peanuts, toasted corn, sesame oat bran sticks, mini pretzels, and cheddar crackers! This is just enough food to hold you over until the big BBQ!
After the parade it’s time to transition to BBQ mode. Once you get the grill to that perfect temperature you want to begin to prepare your meat. Flavoring your meat, whether it’s chicken, steak, pork, or fish, is one step you don’t want to miss. Texas Treats Texas Seasonings & Texas Chili Gift Set contains every type of seasoning combination for every meat. Making fajitas? Try the Fajita Secret Seasoning. That cheese dip you just made need a little kick? Carefully sprinkle on the Hoot ‘n Holler Jalapeño Powder. Veggies too bland? Try the Sassy Salt Spicy Seasoning. Struttin’ Chicken and Turkey Seasoning is the perfect addition to that grilled chicken. Be sure to try the Third Coast Seafood Seasoning on your grilled fish. Your seasoning will have heads turning!
The sun is starting to set so it’s time to start moving to the final event for the 4th of July… Fireworks! Every major city of Texas will have a fireworks display for you and your family to enjoy. This is a great way to end a patriotic day honoring or freedom and liberty as Americans. Sometimes our kiddos get a little scared hearing the loud KABOOM of the fireworks going off. One way to help them get over the fear of the fireworks is to have them make a noise the same time the firework goes off. This helps to take their mind off the booming sound of the fireworks as they try to match the explosion with the delayed sound. Have your child hit the Texas Cowbell from Texas Treats with every explosion and by the finale they won’t be scared anymore.
Happy 4th of July from everyone at Texas Treats!
