Thanksgiving Word Searches

Word search puzzles are fun for kids and adults alike, and are a perfect activity for Thanksgiving!

Keep everyone occupied with these printable word searches to solve while the turkey is cooking, or as an after-dinner game, or just on the leadup to Thanksgiving when the kids need some quiet time!

I have created six different word searches of varying difficulty using words and phrases associated with Thanksgiving as described below:

  • In the two easy puzzles, 10 single words appear horizontally and vertically and forwards only.
  • In the two medium puzzles, 20 single words and phrases appear horizontally, vertically, and diagonally and forwards only.
  • In the two hard puzzles, 30 words and phrases 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 Thanksgiving 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 with a regular pen.

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