Independence Day Puzzles

Independence Day Packet

We are celebrating Independence Day early here at Corwin. We put together a variety of free puzzles and activities for you and your community to enjoy. 🇺🇸

Our favorite fun fact we found about 4th of July: 😂

Around 150 million, to be more specific—that’s how many hot dogs will be consumed by Americans on the Fourth of July. According to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, that amount of dogs can stretch from Washington D.C. to Los Angeles more than five times.

Summer Lovin’

Picture it: bright colors, sunny days and ice cream heaven (these are our day dreams today. 😂 ) We have lovingly dished out some summer vibes this week. In reality at Corwin, our summer doesn’t end until around October thanks to the generous Florida sun. However, we celebrate it just the same as the rest of the country. Beach days tend to be more frequent and there is a change in license plates as tourists come down. 🌴☀️🌊

The shape of this summer has been different thanks to the pandemic, but we find ourselves being thankful for the simple things now. A porch conversation with a neighbor or an ice cream cone that came from a shop (not the back of our freezer). How have you all shifted to greet this summer? What things have worked – what hasn’t? Comment below and tell us all about it! 💅

Juneteenth Freebie Puzzles

Celebrate Juneteenth with your community with our latest puzzle packet!

✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻

We put together historically minded puzzles for a holiday that hasn’t been been celebrated in mainstream American culture for long. However, you can trace the holiday’s origins prior to the Civil War ending.

Quick Facts About Juneteenth:

  1. Juneteenth can also be known as Freedom Day , Jubilee Day, Cel-Liberation Day or the Black Fourth of July.
  2. It doesn’t mark the signing of the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation, nor does it commemorate the December 1865 ratification of the 13th Amendment. Instead, it marks the moment when emancipation finally reached those in the deepest parts of the former Confederacy.
  3. At first celebration involved church-centered community gatherings in Texas. It spread across the South and became more commercialized in the 1920s and 1930s.
  4. Activists are pushing Congress to recognize Juneteenth as a national holiday. Juneteenth is recognized as a state holiday or special day of observance in 46 of the 50 states.

A quote from the Vox Article: Why celebrating Juneteenth is more important now than ever, by P.R. Lockhart below 👇

“There are those in this society that still hold on to the idea that the Civil War wasn’t about slavery, it was about states’ rights or Northern aggression against slavery,” says Karlos Hill, a professor of African and African-American studies at the University of Oklahoma and the author of Beyond the Rope: The Impact of Lynching on Black Culture and Memory. “Juneteenth is a moment where we step back and try to understand the Civil War through the eyes of enslaved people.”

How are you celebrating?

With America’s past and current events – it is more poignant than ever to celebrate this empowering holiday. How much did you know about this holiday previously? What are you doing in your community to celebrate? Comment below and let us know! 🤔

Happy Juneteenth! We hope you and yours stay safe and well. 💖

Toilet Paper Roll Bird Feeders

It’s DIY Friday! For this week’s craft, we’ll be making quick and easy bird feeders! This activity is quite simple using only a handful of supplies to make – in fact, you should be able to find some of your supplies in the bathroom. 🚽

So start saving your toilet paper rolls (they come in handy for tons of crafts) recycling doesn’t have to be boring. We even have a bin dedicated to collecting our rolls! ♻️

Toilet Paper Roll Bird Feeders
Toilet Paper Roll Bird Feeders

A little peanut butter and birdseed make a delicious treat for our feathered friends. Let’s get crafting some toilet paper roll bird feeders! 🕊

You Will Need:

  • Toilet Paper Rolls
  • Peanut Butter (try chunky!)
  • Bird Seed
  • Butter Knife
  • Paper Plate
  • Twine/ribbon
  • Scissors


Toilet Paper Roll Bird Feeders

To Begin:

  1. First, start by spreading a layer of peanut butter on your toilet paper roll using your knife.
  2. Next, pour the bird seed to fill the paper plate.
  3. Like a rolling pin, roll the peanut butter covered toilet paper roll in the seeds. The seeds will stick to the peanut butter coating it in seeds.
  4. Next cut a piece of twine or ribbon. String through the hole in your toilet paper roll and tie.

Hang your bird feeders in a spot visible from the porch or window and enjoy a day filled with birds!

May, you were a gem!

As much as a gem May was to us, we are not upset to look forward to June!💎

As May comes to a close we find ourselves crossing off monthly goals and feeling accomplished. We all are facing uncertain times, but it has been nice to slow down and knock out long-term goals that were just sitting in the background. We have some fun puzzle action for this upcoming week below, and hope you have also been able to knock out a couple goals this month as well. 👏

Word Search & the Lone Sudoku

Word Search & the Lone Sudoku would be an excellent band name. Or is that just us? 😅 This week all word search design was were we wanted to be.

Do you ever just have to step away from the screen and train your eyes to something different? We totally do and these puzzles help keep us sharp. Granted we do live in Florida, so sometimes a walk around the block in the sunshine does the trick too! 🌴🌞

Is there an activity that you do personally (or with your community) that helps with the mid-day screen gaze? Comment below and let us know!
