Hanukkah Word Search Printables

Word search puzzles are fun for kids and adults alike, and are a perfect activity for all sorts of occasions – especially when you need to have a little quiet time after all the festivities!

I’ve created these word searches for Hanukkah using 50 different words and phrases associated with the Festival of Lights.

Hanukkah 2020 will begin on the evening of Thursday, 10 December, and ends on the evening of Friday, 18 December – there are enough Chanukkah word search puzzles for every night – with an extra one for luck!

The nine different word searches for Hanukkah are of varying difficulty (they are color-coded) using words and phrases associated with the festival as described below:

  • In the three easy word search puzzles, single words appear horizontally and vertically and forwards only.
  • In the three medium word search puzzles, single words and phrases appear horizontally, vertically, and diagonally and forwards only.
  • In the three hard word search puzzles, words appear forwards and backward and in all directions – horizontally, vertically, and diagonally.

Also included is the answer sheets to all the puzzles should you have trouble finding all of the words/phrases.

Puzzles like this Hanukkah word search are also fab for those with a competitive nature!

Whether it is by yourself and trying to solve the puzzle against a timer, or with other people and seeing who can find all the words first.

As you find the words, cross them off the list.

I like to use highlighter pens to mark words when I find them, as opposed to crossing them through.

Highlighting the words is best for children as the letters can still be clearly seen (useful when words cross paths on the grid).
