Halloween Word Search
These Halloween word search puzzles are fun for kids and adults alike, and are a perfect activity for the spooky season!
If you can’t go Trick or Treating, why not print off some of my Halloween printables, including these word searches to still celebrate and have fun!
There are three different word search puzzles in this set – easy, medium, and hard. With these different difficulty levels it means the whole family can get involved.
All the words and phrases are of course related to Halloween!
- There are 10 simple, single words to find in the easy puzzle, words appear horizontally and vertically and forwards only.
- There are 20 words and phrases in the medium puzzle, words appear horizontally, vertically, and diagonally and forwards only.
- There are 30 words and phrases in the hard puzzle, words appear forwards and backwards 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 word search for Halloween 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).
