4th of July Word Search {free printable}

Pin It
The 4th of July holiday celebrations are a big event in our country. Some families stay close to home at this time. Others travel to visit family out of town or even in another state.  If your family is anything like ours, you can sympathize with the fact that it’s tough to keep the kiddos occupied in the car for all those miles. Kindles, iPads, and Gameboys last just so long in keeping them occupied. Or maybe you're dealing with the "summer slide" and just need a way to keep the gears in your children's minds turning during summer break.  Either way, I've got an activity for you! It's not uncommon for me to print out various word searches, crosswords, and good ole fashioned worksheets for Bear to do to keep his hands and mind busy. 
Here's a free 4th of July crossword printable to keep your kiddos busy in the car or as something to do at home just for fun during the 4th of July season.  Bear had fun doing it as my tester. Some of the words even led to further discussion and some online research.
  • Who is Uncle Sam?
  • Why do we celebrate with fireworks?
  • What does "independence" actually mean?
  • Where was the first flag made?
