USA Puzzle & Coloring Placemats

Our boutique brand USA Puzzle and Coloring Placemat are the perfect additions to your Fourth of July celebrations! Crafted with care and designed to inspire, these items bring a fun, educational twist to your family festivities. The USA Puzzle helps children learn about the states while enhancing their problem-solving skills, and the whimsical Coloring Placemat keeps little hands busy with patriotic scenes waiting to be brought to life with color.

Here are 5 great ways to use these items:

  1. Map it out: Use the USA puzzle as a visual aid to pinpoint places the family has visited in the past. Encourage each family member to share their favorite memories from those trips.

    2. Geography Lesson: Use the USA coloring sheets & puzzle as a fun way to teach kids about the different states, their shapes, and where they are located on the map.

    3. State Capitals Challenge: After completing the USA puzzle, challenge the family to match each state with its capital city. Create a game where each family member takes turns guessing the capital of a randomly selected state, and whoever gets the most correct answers wins a prize.

    4. History Lesson: As you work on the USA puzzle together, take the opportunity to share interesting facts about each state's history and culture. Discuss important events, landmarks, and famous figures associated with each state to make the learning experience engaging and informative.

    5. Create a travel bucket list: With the completed puzzle or colored map as a guide, plan out future road trips or vacations, mapping out the routes you'd take to visit different states. Discuss possible stops along the way and what you'd like to see and do in each location

Craft Inspiration: Fork Firework Painting

Although this isn't an activity we've included the supplies for, this activity is so simple and you probably have everything you need laying around the house!

Celebrate the 4th of July with this fork painted fireworks craft! Use forks to stamp paint on paper, creating beautiful red, white, and blue fireworks. Then sprinkle on some glitter for a little extra sparkle!

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Gather your supplies and materials: Red paint, white paint, blue paint, paper, 3 plastic forks and a paper plate for each child (to use as the "palette" and "brushes")

2. Prepare for stamping: Add red, white, and blue paint to a paper plate, making sure the colors aren't touching.

3. Dip the bottom of a fork into your first paint color. Rock the fork back and forth to make sure the back of the tines are completely covered in paint.

4. Make the first layer of fireworks: Stamp the bottom of the fork onto the paper. Re-dip the fork as needed and continue stamping the fork at different angles, around an imaginary circle in the center.

Using the same color of paint, add fork marks in-between the last stamps you made. This time, drag your fork outwards to make the firework larger.You may need to dip your fork in the paint a couple of times to make these lines.

Fill in the rest of the paper with fireworks. We were able to fit 4 fireworks total on our page, 2 with a blue base and 2 with a red base.

5. Add the second and third layers of paint: Wait about 15 minutes for the first layer of paint to dry, and then stamp a layer of white fireworks overtop of the blue and red ones.Do not drag your fork for this layer. Allow to dry.

Add a third and final layer of paint to the fireworks. Stamp a blue layer on the red and white fireworks, and a red layer to the blue and white ones.

6. Sprinkle glitter on the fireworks: While the final layer of paint is still wet, sprinkle glitter over the fireworks. Shake off the excess glitter and allow your fireworks to dry.
