Kids don’t need to be able to read to do this puzzle as each word has a picture beside it showing them what the word is.

The words are easy to find.

They can be found horizontally in the direction we read (from left to right) or vertically (from top to bottom). There are no diagonal, backwards or upside down words.

Educational & Fun Learning Activity

The word search puzzle is a fun letter recognition activity. Kids will get to practice identifying and finding the different letters of the alphabet that make up each word.

And you can choose whether you want your child to practice with uppercase or lowercase letters. There’s a version for each.
