Are there any benefits to working on word search puzzles?

  • Helps with word recognition and spelling
    Word search puzzles can be a great way to help children learn some new words. It also allows them to work on improving their spelling skills as well as improve their vocabulary.
  • Word search puzzles can be relaxing
    Working on puzzles like word searches can be a great way to reduce your stress level. They are also good for distracting you from a stressful situation that may be weighing on your mind. Word searches can also a nice activity to help you unwind after a long day of school or work.
  • They are great way to pass the time.
    Instead of taking out your phone, tablet or laptop the next time you are on a long train ride, car trip or flight, try working on a word search puzzle instead. Time will pass by fast and your eyes will definitely love getting a little break from screens.
  • You might feel a sense of accomplishment after completing the puzzle.
    While it may only be for a short while, I know I always get a small boost in mood when you I find that word I have been searching struggling to find.

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.

This game is designed to be printed onto a standard 8.5×11 inch piece of paper or cardstock. Two games will print per page.

After printing, simply cut the two games apart using scissors or a paper cutter. This is the paper cutter that I am currently using and I definitely can recommend it.
