Why I Love Word Searches

Word searches have always been one of my favorite activities, and now I love doing them with my kids! It feels like a game to my kids, but I know that it’s also helping them learn and build important skills.

Word searches can help your kids:

  • learn their letters and sight words
  • build logic
  • improve patience
  • strengthen memory

Even at such a young age with my Kindergarten Word Search, I’m happy to know my kids are doing something that is fun and educational.

How to Use Kindergarten Word Search

Word searches a pretty simple! Here’s a quick tutorial to help you get started.

First, you’ll want to scroll down and download my free Kindergarten Word Search Printable. Then you print it right at home, or at your local printing shop. (Pro-tip, grab yourself some self-adhesive laminating sheets, and laminate your word searches. Use dry-erase markers and you can use your word search again and again)!

After it’s printed, you can let your kindergartener look for each word in the word bank within the scrambled letters in the above section. And that’s it! Try to find all the words and the kindergarten word search is complete.

How to Help Young Kids with Word Searches

If word searches are new to your child, you can try a few things to help them feel more confident as they get started.

One thing you can try is writing each word they are looking for larger on a piece of paper or whiteboard so they can focus on just one word at a time. You can also do something similar by using sticky notes to cover up all the extra words.

If they still need a little help, sit with them and do the activity together! Let them take the lead, but guide them to sound out the letters until they find the words they are looking for.

  1. My older daughter loves doing word searches. I haven’t really considered giving my 5-year-old word searches before. Now with these printables, there are no reasons not to.

  2. We only have one kindergartener hanging around and I know he’d love this! Keeping things for him to stay engaged is a task at times… so keep great stuff like this coming! Thanks for for share.
