Word scrambles are the perfect combination of fun and educational learning, so they’re high on my list of favorite things to create for my kids. Word scrambles have been proven to help children improve their spelling, learn problem-solving skills, and extend their vocabularies, so they’re a great way to make learning fun! This fun Thanksgiving word scramble game is made up of fifteen mixed-up Thanksgiving themed words just begging to be put into proper order!

There’s a nicely balanced mix of long and short words on the list, so it’s suitable for all ages from elementary school children through adults, though it’s probably best suited for middle elementary grades and older in order for them to have a chance at getting 100% of the words unscrambled! For an extra level of challenging competition, race the clock or each other to see who can unscramble the most words the fastest!

Printable Thanksgiving Word Scramble with \"gratitude\" and \"harvest\" unscrambled

We like to set a timer for 2 or 3 minutes and see which member of our family can unscramble the most words in the time allotted (it makes a fantastic Minute to Win It Game this way!), or it’s also fun to compete head-to-head to see who can finish the entire list first!

(Oh, and don’t worry if you can’t solve them all! We’ve included a word scramble answer sheet for those tough-to-solve words!)
