If you are looking for something fun to do this year before the fireworks start, or to give your “bored” kids something fun to do over the weekend.
Celebrate independence with this word search puzzle that will keep the kids busy for hours, certainly the really hard one!!!

Word search printables are a great educational activity, and in this free download, we have included 2 versions. One for younger students, and another for middle school-aged kids.
I had been able to find lots of July 4th word searches on Etsy, however, I struggled to find harder ones for my middle schooler. So, I thought I would create one and share it with you guys.
You can also download our free 4th of July scavenger hunt printable and have even more summer fun.
Independence Day Word Search
There are 16 words all related to the 4th of July in both word searches, however, one is significantly harder than the other. But the words are the same.
Perfect if you are wanting this for different-aged kids. Just scroll down to download your FREE copies.
We absolutely love word searches in this house, and often, when bored, we will grab a word search, coloring book, or puzzle rather than the easy option of gaming!
As a homeschool mom, I’m always on the lookout for as many educational resources as I can find, that are fun!! So these word searches help with spelling, vocabulary, and history!
Maybe you could create a game with this too, give the easier word search to a younger child, and either you do the harder one, or if you had an older child they could race to see who gets them all first.
