8. Sparkle Party
Wow your Fourth of July party guests with ginormous 36-inch sparklers: They'll light up the night for three minutes—long enough to let you write and draw magnificently in the air. To capture the magic on film, download a slow-shutter app like Slow Shutter Cam. (Sparklers, $34 for pack of 40; SuperiorCelebrations.com)
