How to make printable activities reusable:

If you are planning on using this crossword puzzle as a yearly activity in the classroom for example, you may want to reuse the games each year. If so, I would definitely recommend laminating the pages.

Once you laminate the games you can then use dry erase markers to fill in the answers. Afterwards, you can simply wipe off the marker and then the next student can work on solving the puzzle.

Another option are dry erase pockets. All you need to do is print out the crossword puzzle and then place the game into the dry erase pocket and use dry erase markers to fill in the answers.

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
