Looking for the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving kids table?
This Printable Thanksgiving Word Search is a fun game to keep the little ones busy and happy while waiting for their meal.
I included words related to gratitude in this word search, which make it perfect for Thanksgiving. But, you can also use it with your kids to start a conversation about how to be grateful and why it is important.
It can be used in your classroom too. It’s a great holiday resource to explore new vocabulary words and improve language learning and spelling.
The best part of this printable game is that most kids can have fun with it.
Young kids who are just learning to read will be able to find most of the words on their own, while older kids will still find this game engaging and take some time to find a couple of words.
