Christmas Word Search Puzzles
Word games are a lot of fun for both children and adults, and a themed word search can be the perfect activity for the Christmas season.
To that end, I've collected some great printable Christmas word searches that you can download and print for free.
For those who may not know, a printable is an online coloring or activity page that can be printed out for immediate use. The Christmas word puzzle printables offered here come in a variety of difficulty levels so that there are options appropriate for children and adults. Word searches meant for children incorporate pictures in the margins, which help retain the interest of children, while those meant for adults are usually larger and contain overlapping and backward words.

Hard Holiday Word Search
Though word searches are never truly challenging, some things that can make them more difficult are a larger grid, shorter words, and words that are written backward. This word search has all of those factors, and fun holiday words to boot, making it perfect for older children or adults.
