If you’re looking for a fun screen free activity for the kids this holiday season then this Christmas word search is the printable puzzle for you!
There are 20 festive words hidden in this word game, including holiday favorites like candy cane, hot chocolate and Rudoplh.
I’ve hidden them forwards, backwards, horizontally, vertically and diagonally, so this is a puzzle that might be more suited for older kids.
There’s also an answer sheet included in your download, so no need to worry if you can’t find all words! Scroll down to the bottom to to grab it.
An easy Christmas activity for kids
Christmas is a busy time for everyone. The kids are super excited, and you’re running around busy as beaver trying to get everything organised!
So it’s nice to have a quiet activity to sit down with.
Word searches are great for this. They’re an easy way for you to de-stress and for the kids to have a little screen free fun. Plus, they give your brain a bit of a workout at the same time!
I’ve written about the benefits of word search puzzles before, but they’re great for improving vocabulary, spelling and word recognition, amongst other things.

The puzzle and the answer sheet are in PDF format in a zipped file. They’re both sized for US Letter paper / 8.5 x 11 inches but you could print it on A4 paper as well! You just might need to adjust your printer settings slightly so that your printer doesn’t crop the edges of the page.
For the best results I’d recommend printing on high quality printer paper.
You could also fit 2 word search puzzles on one page to save on paper and use a paper trimmer (this one is great) to cut each puzzle down to size.
