Printable Summer Word Search
This game has a medium difficulty level, so I recommend using it with kids in grades 3 and up.
It includes 20 summer words hidden vertically, horizontally, and diagonally (forward and backward).
The words featured are:
- Ice cream
To start the search, all you have to do is download your printable at the end of this post and print it on regular white paper.
If you are printing multiple copies and are planning to reuse them next year, you can laminate them or put them inside sheet protectors.
To play, give each kid a copy of the game and let them find all the summer words listed.
You can let them do it at their own pace, or you can set up a timer and pick a winner according to who has found the most words.
To mark the words, you can use highlighters, coloring pencils, or crayons. And if you decided to laminate the game, make sure to use non-waterproof markers.
