Word search printables are an easy way to plan an extra activity.

These printable word searches can be used to reinforce a weekly theme. They are also a fun and interesting way to entertain children when the weather makes it hard to get outdoors, or you need a quiet time activity for older kids while the little ones are napping.

Each of the word search puzzles involves a theme that children can relate to.

NOTE: All of the word search printables are intended for personal use only. Daycare providers, teachers and parents are welcome to print in quantity as needed.

Simply click on the word search of your choice to find the file in PDF format. This makes it easy to make as many copies as you need.
