It’s 4th of July Week!
This week at Jigsaw Junkies, we’re featuring 4th of July themed puzzles for the upcoming holiday. Today’s post is a top ten list of the best 4th of July and Patriotic themed puzzles, just in time for your firework festivities.
10. “Mapletown Picnic” by Andy Thomas, Sunsout — 500 pieces
This is a sweet small town nostalgia puzzle in 500 pieces. Don’t you want to be in this scene?
9. “Patriotic Cupcakes”, Vermont Christmas Company — 1000 pieces
If collage puzzles are more your scene, this one from Vermont Christmas Company is perfect for this time of year. Looks like a challenge with all that identically shaded red, white and blue frosting.
8. “United States Presidents” by Randy Green, White Mountain — 1000 pieces
This would be a terrific puzzle to tackle for the 4th of July, especially with kids. All 44 US presidents are in the puzzle along with fun facts about the presidency.
7. “State Plates” by Aaron Foster Design, Springbok — 1000 pieces
Here’s one for fans of Springbok puzzles. I like the large size of the American flag in this puzzle, and the license plates portion should be a breeze to complete. It’s a nice mix of textures.
6. “4th of July Parade” by Bob Pettes, Sunsout — 500 pieces
I like the round shape of this 4th of July themed puzzle and all the small figures. It was fun to put together.
5. “Hometown Heroes: Men of Honor” by Dona Gelsinger, Master Pieces — 1000 pieces
The “Hometown Heroes” series from Master Pieces features interesting still life/tableau paintings with law enforcement, firemen, and military themes. This one is particularly patriotic with the flag in the background and the Uncle Sam poster. This is a random cut puzzle similar in quality to Sunsout or Springbok.
4. “Bird House Celebration” by Lori Schory, Sunsout — 1000 pieces, shaped
Yay for a 4th of July themed puzzle that’s shaped! This one has the added interest that the bird in the upper left is a totally separate puzzle from the main puzzle. Interesting. I like the heavy use of red, white and blue here and the border is very irregular.
3. “The Few and the Proud” by Ray Simon, Sunsout — 1000 pieces
This is a complex and interesting patriotic image, almost a collage. I like the yellow sky in the bottom half of the image and the three military figures. Due to that collage effect, it looks like it would be pretty straight forward to assemble.
2. “Patriots”, Lafayette Puzzle Company — 1000 pieces
I love the vintage art style in this image and wow, does it look like a challenge with all that red, white and blue and the flag stripes everywhere. Looks like a lot of fun to put together!
1. “Made in the USA” by Tom Wood, Sunsout — 1000 pieces
My #1 spot on this list goes to “Made in the USA” which I reviewed earlier this week here. I like the country fair setting, the fireworks, and the nice mix of red, white and blue textures. It was super fun to assemble too with the sturdy pieces, tight interlock, and very random cut.
