Instructions for How to Play this St. Patrick’s Day Word Search
What is a word search? It is a game in which players attempt to find all of the words hidden in a square grid of letters. Once you find one of the words, simply circle or highlight it and keep searching for more until you find them all. If you can’t find a particular word, you can refer to the answer key provided.
This printable puzzle places words left-to-right, top-down, or the two diagonals from left to right. The remainder of the puzzle is filled with any letters of the alphabet. No words are overlapping.
You can also turn it into a fun competition by playing with friends or family to see who can find all the words first and give a small prize to whoever wins. Dollar Tree is a great place to find holiday party favors that make great prizes. Examples include St Patrick’s day headbands, chocolate gold coins, crafting kits for kids, etc.
