Kid's Fun Activities

Word Search

letter grid

Search for hidden words in a jungle of letters. Some of the words are going up, some are going down, some are backwards, some are on a slant, and some words are even going the right way. Some of the games give you a new set of words to find each time you play.

  1. The first game is a grid of letters 12 columns by 14 rows. This game contains 33 words including one which is bent. You can find the words on the computer screen or print it to work off-line.
  2. The second game is a grid of letters 10 columns by 10 rows. This game contains 21 words including one that goes around in a rectangle. You can find the words on the computer screen or print it to work off-line.
  3. The third game is a dynamic game in which the words are selected and the grid is made fresh each time you start the game. If you get frustrated, you can even click for a fresh list of words and new grid. You can choose your desired difficulty level in the list below.
