Here are 2 summer themed fill-in puzzles your kids are sure to enjoy! Both printable word puzzles are free to download and print.
What is a fill-in puzzle?
A fill-in puzzle is similar to a crossword puzzle, but instead of clues, you are given the words – to fill in or fit in the available spaces.
The words are grouped by the amount of letters they contain. So a 9 letter word will need to be placed in a word box that holds 9 letters.
Even tho there could be multiple 9 letter words, they can’t just be placed in any available spot. The challenge is choosing which word goes in which place, so that all the words will fit in the puzzle.
Fun and Educational
A fill-it-in puzzle is not only fun and relaxing, it’s also a good way to keep the brain active during the summer months.
Since kids will be examining each word letter by letter to see which word fits where, they will naturally be improving in spelling.
The two puzzles use summer themed words – each puzzle having about 32 words.
