Use this Thanksgiving word search printable to entertain your kids this Thanksgiving season. Whether you are a parent, teacher, day care provider, room parent, grandparent, etc. this is a quick and easy printable game to entertain kids of any age.
It’s the perfect activity to put at each child’s place at Thanksgiving dinner. Or, use it during the long road trip to Grandma’s house. If you’re a teacher – you could use it as a fun classroom activity.
This free printable Thanksgiving word search includes all Thanksgiving words and cute Thanksgiving clip art. It’s a fun activity to help celebrate Thanksgiving or provide some downtime for children (or even adults).
Word search games are more than just a busy activity. Often times that is what they are thought of – especially in the classroom.
But in reality, they offer surprising benefits. They help with letter and word recognition, spelling skills, noticing letter patterns, vocabulary, reducing screen time, problem solving skills, and they keep your brain active. Word search puzzles can even be a great way for children to socialize with each other as they work together to find hidden words.
Unlike crossword puzzles, word searches can be performed by younger kids. Included in this set of Thanksgiving word search puzzles are 3 levels, including one meant for little kids. Not every Thanksgiving game can be played by older kids and younger kids together – but by printing the various levels included, you can have all kids working on the same type of Thanksgiving activity.
If you’re a teacher, this is a great activity to have printed and ready during the holiday season. If you’re preparing early, you may even have time to send it to your school system’s print shop (if you have one). Or, if you have a classroom interactive whiteboard, you could make it a class activity and have children come up to the screen to circle words on the board.
There are so many reasons as a teacher that you could use this Thanksgiving word find. If you have some downtime, indoor recess, harvest party, need some quiet time, or you have an unexpected sick day (gotta love that cold and flu season), using a printable word search puzzle could be the perfect way to keep kids active and quiet.
If you’re a parent, it’s a great option for a quick activity during Thanksgiving break. Or, as stated above, to use while traveling. Print off some coloring pages, this word search, and other Thanksgiving printables to create a mini packet of activities to provide a non-screen option while traveling. You could also print them off to use as an activity on Thanksgiving day for all of the children.
As you near Thanksgiving, things can get a bit hectic in the classroom or at home. Word searches can be a fun way to keep kids of all ages entertained. Plus, it will give you a bit of quiet time, too.
