With very young kids, you can start by having them find the first letter of the word you are searching for. Then you can help them go through the letters next to that first letter and see if it is what you are looking for.

If nothing else, it is a great way to start introducing letters and the very basics of spelling. Sometimes thinking outside of the box can be really fun in terms of finding new and exciting activities that help kids learn!

In this Spring word search game you will be searching for the following twelve Spring themed words below:

  • April
  • Birds
  • Bloom
  • Sunny
  • Butterfly
  • Flowers
  • Garden
  • May
  • Rainbow
  • Spring
  • Sunshine
  • Warm

Words can be found horizontally, vertically, diagonally, forwards and backwards.

Strategies that may help you solve word searches:

There are a bunch of different techniques you can use to work on word search puzzles. Here are a few of the ones I personally use.

Take a quick glance at the whole puzzle.
Usually, what I’ll do first is very simple. I’ll just take a look at the word search game and see if any words initially pop out at me. This isn’t very unique trick but oftentimes there are at least a few words that I can immediately see jump out

Find the beginning letter.
After I do a quick scan to see if any whole words jump out at me, I will usually choose one word from the word bank and then go row by row to find the first letter. Once I find that letter I look all around it to see if the rest of the word follows. I continue this way until all the words have been found! This may not be the quickest way to search for words, but it definitely works!

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.
