Aaron’s Independence Day Free- cute puzzles with July 4th themes. Puzzle completion is timed but does not seem to stop you even if it takes awhile. There are lots of opportunities here for commenting about puzzle being “easy” or “hard”, putting pieces in “upside down”, “getting it right”, or even about the “flag” and other 4th of July images.
