Kids and adults alike will love these Christmas word search puzzles! They're fun and (don't go telling the kids) educational because they help strengthen vocabulary and spelling.
I've divided this list of Christmas word search puzzles into three levels - printable puzzles that are easy (15 hidden words or less), medium (16-30 words), and challenging (31 words or more to find). I've also included a recommended grade level for each puzzle category.
At the bottom of the list you'll find some online Christmas word searches. These can be completed online without having to print out anything.
If don't find quite what you're looking for, you can create your own Christmas word search puzzle or complete a winter word search puzzle. There are also bible word search puzzles, holiday word searches, and all kinds of other word searches you might like.
These Christmas word search puzzles are all printable and contain 15 or less hidden words. These puzzles are great for children in grades 1-3.
The Christmas word search puzzles below are all considered medium level of difficulty with having between 16-30 words that need to be found. I recommend these puzzles for kids in grades 4-5.
If you're looking for a challenging printable Christmas words search then these are it! You'll need to find more than 31 hidden words. I recommend these for grades 6 and up. They're great for adults too!
These Christmas word search puzzles can be completed online. I've listed them starting with the easiest and then increasing in difficulty.
