Winter Fill In Puzzles

Here are some free printable winter fill in puzzles for kids.

Word fill in puzzles are great for those cold winter days, when you want a quick and easy no prep indoor activity for kids to do. Just download and print.

The first puzzle uses winter weather and winter clothing vocabulary.

And the second puzzle focuses more on fun winter activities and common words you’d associate with winter.

Both puzzles also have some winter images that kids can color, if they enjoy coloring.

Difficulty Level

The difficulty level of these fill-in puzzles is easy.

In an easy fill in puzzle, there is at least one section (the groups of words with the same amount of letters) that only has one word in its list. This gives kids an easy place to start, and they can go from there.  

It’s ideal for ages 8 to adult, or grades 3 and up.

Word Fill In Puzzles

A fill in puzzle is a type of word puzzle that is very similar to a crossword puzzle. But instead of trying to find the answer to a clue, the fill in puzzle gives the words to put in the puzzle.

The challenge is figuring out where to put them. All the words need to fit in the puzzle.

The words are sorted by the amount of letters in each word. A 3 letter word can only be put in a spot that will hold 3 letters, and a 12 letter word a 12 letter spot.

Fill in word puzzles can be quite enjoyable to do. I loved doing them when I was a kid.

They are also educational, as they can help kids improve their logic skills, spelling and vocabulary.
