Printable Word Searches

Updated on October 9, 2014

Word Searches Expand the Mind

Printable word searches can be used for fun or as educational aids. Word search puzzles are great to reinforce spelling of words that children are learning and to encourage seeing things in a new way (spelling words backwards, for instance).

Word searches are also lots of fun to solve, too.

Some of these word search puzzles are easy with just a few words to be found. Easy word search puzzles are great for beginning readers.

Other word puzzles are more advanced with more words and words that are longer. These are suitable for older children and adults. Printable word searches can be used for team building activities or at parties to break the ice.

Make Word Search Puzzles

Use your own word list

It's easy to make your own word search puzzles. Here's one way to do it:

- Make your list of words.

- Hand write or type one of the words on a page. Be sure to leave plenty of space between letters.

- Begin adding other words from the list, connecting them using letters from other words. For instance, if you have the word "bird" on the word puzzle, add the word "button" to the page using the "b" in the word "bird."

Or use this WordSearchesMaker to make word search puzzles with your list of words.

      Wow! Your selection of word search puzzles could keep someone busy for a long time. When would I be able to fit in "Angry Birds," though? :)
