The Fourth of July calls for plenty of food, fireworks and quality family time, right? But you can't spend the entire day outdoors, having gunny sack races and playing ring toss games. In between backyard games and grilling, let kids take a break and still keep busy with these printable coloring pages.  

We've created 23 festive Fourth of July coloring book printouts featuring patriotic pictures of soaring bald eagles, firecrackers, American flags and even an old-timey Fourth of July parade. 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?

Stock up on your red and blue crayons — you're going to need 'em.
