The Fourth of July is almost upon us, and while plenty of us are feeling not-so patriotic during this time of the Supreme Court’s revocation of women’s rights (and/or already celebrated America’s diversity on Juneteenth), the holiday remains a day of celebration for many Americans. And hey, what’s not to like about food, fun, and fireworks — and a day off? But you can’t spend the entire Fourth day and night outdoors (not in this July heat, at least). In between backyard games and grilling, let your littles take a break and still keep busy with these printable Fourth of July coloring pages.
We’ve created festive Fourth printouts featuring patriotic pictures of soaring bald eagles, firecrackers, and American flags. You’ll also find activity pages where kids can help each other through a Fourth of July word search and name the 50 states as they color in our printable U.S. map. Not only are kids unleashing their creative side, but they’re also using their minds to solve puzzles and learn geography. We’d consider that a win-win, wouldn’t you?
So stock up on your festive kid-friendly art supplies (and, you know, your red and blue crayons) — you’re going to need ’em.

OK, maybe kids shouldn't handle rocket fireworks in real life. You could teach them how to be safe around fireworks as they're coloring.
Yeah, kids probably shouldn't grill, either. Still cute, though.
