The difficulty level is easy to medium.

It’s ideal for children around 3rd grade or ages 7 to 9.

The words in this grade 3 winter word search could be hidden in any direction – horizontally, vertically and diagonally: forwards or backwards.

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.
