Christmas Word Searches

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I love the holiday season and I’ve spent the last few days getting my Christmas craft on. Everyone deserves a break once in a while and Christmas Word Searches are a great way to relax.

Personally I love to put on some Christmas tunes, sip on hot cocoa and do a word search by the light of my Christmas tree. That’s possible because I put enough lights on my tree to illuminate a small village. Even if you don’t you can still enjoy these free puzzles.

Over the years I’ve made quite a few different word search puzzles with different themes. I have holiday word searches based on Christmas songs, santa’s reindeer and snowmen. If you have any requests or ideas for new puzzles please email me [email protected]

Easy Christmas Word Searches

If you need a quick break from ‘redecorating’ the tree after the kids are done you might need a word search or two. The puzzles in this section are on the easy side.

They have fewer words and they aren’t hidden as well. If you have kindergarten ages kids you can even ask them to find single letters!

Difficult Christmas Word Searches

Winter weather isn’t always the greatest. I love romping in the freshly fallen snow as much as the next native NYer but sometimes we have way more icy mud than snow and.. I’ll take a hard pass there.

Word searches are a great indoor way to keep older kids seasonally entertained. The following puzzles are on the difficult side of things. They have more words, more letters to search though and the word are backwards, forwards, upside down and diagonal.

Since they’re on the trickier side, they might take a minute and a plate of No Bake Bumble Cookies to get through. I am working on adding keys to the difficult puzzles. They’re linked right after the download link where I have them available to help you keep your sanity though the holiday sugar highs.

All of my puzzles are only available here as PDF downloads. I had a lot of problems with Google drive and schools not getting along and this is the solution I came up with.

Click on the picture or the text underneath and it will open in a new window where you can download or print the puzzle.

I make these puzzles available for free so please don’t sell or profit from them. You can print one copy for yourself or enough for your whole school class, scout troop, family etc. The PDFs do not have the giant chicken watermark on them ?

If you would like to share the word finds I’d appreciate it if you sent people my way by emailing/sharing the link to this page instead of the file.

Thank you for posting your word search puzzles, especially the Holiday Tunes. My family is very competitive at our "Family Game Night" and i needed something a little more challenging for this gathering!

Thank you so much - these are awesome! I've been stumped on what to send family and friends as a thank you for holiday gifts, but not any longer. I like this better than thank you cards. It's the gift that keeps on giving :)
