Pirates are one of my kids’ favorite things to pretend to be. They love the adventures as they look for the buried treasure as well as making each other walk the plank.

Our pirate word search is a fun activity that you and your kids can do together, and it’s a great way to help improve your child’s vocabulary. Pair this pirate word search with our nature word search, our unicorn word search, or our Superhero word search for incredible fun!

Word searches are a fun way to relax and exercise our brains. It is also a great way to help our kids to learn new words while having fun. We love incorporating these at home or in the classroom.

For more word search fun be sure to try Halloween word search, summer word search, easter word search.

Helpful Tools We Love When Downloading Printables

  • Printer– I love my HP+ printer that uses Instant Ink. I love it because we can use as much color ink as you want for one low cost starting at $.99/ month for ink. Try it out for free here!
  • Cardstock- I always recommend printing on cardstock. This makes it way more durable so you don’t have to worry about printing it time and time again.
  • Laminator / Laminating Sheets- Again, for added durability, grab a laminator and laminating sheets so that you can use this again and again!
  • Scissors (I seriously love these ones)
  • Dry Erase Pens- Use dry erase pens so that you can wipe your laminated printable clean over and over again for endless use!
