How to Play: Word Search Puzzles

Word searches are puzzles where a list of words is concealed within a grid of letters. Each word from the provided word lists or “dictionary” can be found amongst the scrambled letters. When you spot a word, simply circle it on the letter grid.

The goal is to find all of the words, often as quickly as possible, or to find the highest number of words in a set amount of time.

Word Direction: this puzzle contains forwards, backwards, up, down, and diagonal words.

Spring Word Search Tips & Tricks

Occasionally, you may find it challenging to locate all the words in a puzzle. Here are a few tips to help you discover those hidden words more easily:

  • When looking for a specific word, such as “Daisy,” begin at the upper left corner of the word search and quickly scan each line for the letter “D.” Once you find a “D,” check if the adjacent letters form the sequence “A,” “I,” and so on, until you spell out the entire word “DAISY.”
  • Alternatively, you can break the puzzle into smaller chunks or sections and search for your starting letter in these areas, rather than scanning line by line.
  • If your word contains a unique letter that doesn’t appear frequently in the puzzle, for example, the K in “Kite,” searching for that letter can speed up the process as well.
