With 4th of July right around the corner, you might be searching for some fun ways to keep the kids entertained until the fireworks come out. Well, you’ve come to the right place for a fun patriotic (and cheap) activity.
I’ve made 4 different puzzle pictures: fireworks, cookout food, the US flag, and a Happy 4th of July. They come in black and white for your kids to color in themselves AND in digital color in case you want to skip the crayons. Plus I’ve made two different difficulty levels, puzzles with 5 pieces and puzzles with 10 pieces. All four images are in both difficulty levels.
It’s easy click, print, cut out and enjoy!
Laminate the puzzles before cutting them out to make them last longer. Be sure to color before laminating!
If you want to take the puzzles on the road, it’s easy with a little magnet tape. I love this stuff, it cuts easily with scissors and has a sticky side like a sticker. Simply cut off some small sections and stick to the backside of your puzzle pieces.
Now these puzzles are a great travel activity! Use them on a steal (not aluminum) cookie sheet or magnetic dry erase board in the car when you hit the road for your 4th of July traveling. Or if you’re sticking around town, they’re fun on the fridge too.
While you’re here planning your 4th of July fun, be sure to check out some of these other great posts from Real Life at Home for your Patriotic Partying:
I think this No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake would be a perfect 4th of July dessert.
Thanks and Happy 4th of July!
