Thanksgiving How Many Words Puzzle
Word puzzles are great for all ages, and have so many benefits other than just having fun!
In this free printable you have to write down as many words as you can find in the word THANKSGIVING.
The printable set contains 3 parts – the front page, middle, and last page. Different age groups may need a different number of sheets – depending on how many words that they can find!
This Thanksgiving How Many Words puzzle can be used as a competition between family and friends, as a timed challenge, or finding a set number of words.
Word games like this one can be played in groups, pairs, or individually, making them a great activity for the classroom.
You can make 370 different words using the letters in Thanksgiving, ranging from two-letter words to nine-letter words – how many will you find?

- Printables are available in two paper sizes – A4 and US Letter (8.5″ x 11″). Download the size that is appropriate for your printer.
- Using a printer, simply print as many of the Thanksgiving How Many Words Puzzle as you need onto white paper.
- There are actually 370 words in Thanksgiving, ranging from two-letter words to nine-letter words – how many will you find?
- Word Finding Tips: look for word prefix and suffix patterns such as ‘th’ or ‘ing’; don’t forget plurals if there is an ‘s’; for younger kids it might be easier to move letters around, so why not cut the header into pieces to help them to discover new words.
Suggested Art Supplies
It’s always useful to have some basic art supplies on hand to use with my free printables. You don’t need all the things on my suggested art supplies list, but I wanted to share some of my Amazon favorites with you.
- I love Crayola Super Tips – they come in boxes of various amounts – I’ve got the 100 count box as you can never have too many colors!
- If your child (or you!) prefers to use crayons, I don’t think you can go wrong with classic Crayolas, again they come in various counts.
- Prefer colored pencils? I really don’t think you can go wrong with Crayolas for coloring!
- They also have fun scented pencils which will no doubt bring the holiday coloring page alive with smells!
- Does your child like to paint? I bought this Arteza Kid’s Watercolor Kit for my 6-year-old niece and she loves it!
- Want to add some sparkle? Add glitter! Crayola has a 25 count set, and a 9 count set of glitter glue.
- For puzzle and activity sheets, make sure you have writing pencils, an eraser, and a pencil sharpener.
- Highlighter pens are perfect for marking off words in Word Search Puzzles.
