Educational & Fun Indoor Winter Activity
I love word searches for kids because they are a relaxing way to work on spelling. And it will happen naturally, since a word search is designed for the searcher to spend time focusing on the letters that make up each word – aka spelling. 🙂
And the best part is, kids will just think it’s fun!
Kids only need a pencil to circle the hidden words as they find them.
And optionally, with just a few coloured pencil crayons, children can have fun coloring the images of the snowman and the boy playing outside with a pile of snowballs.
