Using a tee and a driver, have guests hit the marshmallows off the tees and mark each spot the marshmallow lands. Whoever can drive the marshmallow the farthest wins the game.

Cut several watermelons into fourths and lay them on a table. Hungry guests willing to attempt this game must keep their hands behind their backs while they attempt to devour their slice of melon.
The first guest to finish their slice of watermelon without using their hands wins the game.
This is a great game for a hot day, especially if guests are not afraid to get wet. Fill up a bunch of water balloons, find two colanders, and divide guests into two teams. Each team picks one person to "catch" the balloon in the colander.
The catcher stands several feet away from the rest of their team and holds the colander on their head. The teammates take turns tossing the water balloons in the air while the catcher tries to catch the balloons in the colander.
If the whole team wants to get wet, play the game as a relay where the catcher returns to the team and the thrower then becomes the catcher. The team that catches the most balloons wins.
Make history entertaining with this educational game. Compile a list of interesting facts on Independence Day and the history of the American flag. Divide guests into teams and read your facts as statements such as, "The fifty stars on the flag are representative of this."
Guests must answer in the form of a question - "What are the fifty states of the United States?" If not answered as a question, the player does not receive a point. The player with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.
If you have at least 8 guests and a large area to play, this is a game is a lot of fun. Divide guests into two teams.
Stick 5 handheld American flags into the ground on the far side of each teams territory. Using cones mark a center line to divide the area in territories.
The object of the game is for each team to capture as many flags as they can and bring them back to their territory and stick the flag pole into their territories ground, but if a player gets tagged while in the other teams territory they must forfeit any flags they may have on their person and sit where they were tagged until they are freed by one of their team mates tagging them.
Play 15 minute rounds. At the end of each round whichever team has the most flags staked in their territory wins that round. Play as many rounds as you desire.
Liven up your festive party décor and provide entertainment by creating a balloon flag. Blow up red, white and blue balloons and use thumb tacks to secure them to a piece of plywood arranging them to make an American flag.
Set it against a fence as a beautiful backdrop for your party. Then when you are ready, have guests throw darts to pop the balloons.
Have everyone sit in a circle. The first person names something red, the next names something white, and the next something blue. If a player repeats an answer that has already been called or takes more than 5 seconds to think of an answer, they’re out of the game.
For this game you will need a red solo cup, a blue solo cup, string or thin rope, two trees or poles 8-12 feet apart and two decent water guns.
Take the red cup, cut a small hole in it and string it through your string or rope. Tie each side of the rope taut between the two trees or poles. DO the same with the blue cup by putting it on a new string, but make sure to tie that string parallel to the one with the red cup.
Two players face off against each other at a time. Start with the cups on the same end close to the players. Each player shoots their water gun into the cup to propel it down the string to the other side. The first player to get their cup there first wins!
What a perfect time to toss around the ol' pig skin - actually this activity can be done with a baseball as well. Purchase a few hula hoops in patriotic colors (or paint them that way) and hang them from trees in your backyard. Assign a point value to each and give each player six tosses to earn as many point as they can. It help if you have multiple balls.
ALTERNATIVE: Purchase a blue tarp, cut different size holes and shapes in it and give it a festive makeover with paint. Assign those point values and play the same.
