Printable Winter Word Search
This winter word search is ideal for kids in third grade or above. Though, younger kids can also use it with help from an adult.
I designed this snowflake-themed word search with 20 hidden words for your kids to find, including:
These words can be found going up, down, and diagonally with most of them going forward.
To play, all you have to do is download the printable by clicking the link below.
Then, print it on white paper and give it to your kid along with some highlighters or coloring pencils to start searching for the winter words listed at the bottom.
If you are playing with multiple kids, print a copy for each one. Then, you can select a winner by who finds all the words first.
If you are a teacher, you can also laminate your word searches and reuse them the following year. Just make sure to use erasable markers.
You can also take a peek at the Answer Key, in case you are struggling to find a word.
