July 4th Word Search (free printable)
Looking for engaging holiday activities for kids? Add a dash of fun and learning to your Independence Day celebrations with July 4th word searches.
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. 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.
Word searches are one of the best educational games out there! Giving your brain a power boost, and igniting a genuine passion for learning, no matter what age you are.
Celebrate independence with this word search puzzle that will keep the kids busy for hours, certainly the really hard one!!!

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.
The patriotic word searches both have the same hidden words:
