HOW TO PLAY.  To complete the word search, you need to find all the hidden words. The butterfly-related words you need to find are listed to the right of the word search.

When you find a word, circle it. You do this by dragging the letters of the word with your mouse. The word is marked through with a blue line and removed from the list.

If you need a little help, click the "Hint" button. This causes the first letter of one of the words in the puzzle to flash. You can only use this feature one time, however.

THE BEAUTY OF BUTTERFLIES. All cultures revere or even fear the butterfly. Here are some interesting facts about them from Wikipedia:

  • Artistic depictions of butterflies have been used in many cultures including Egyptian hieroglyphs 3500 years ago.
  • The Ancient Greek word for "butterfly" is ψυχή (psȳchē), which primarily means "soul", "mind".
  • The Russian word for "butterfly", бабочка (bábochka), also means "bow tie". It is a diminutive of "baba" or "babka" (= "woman, grandmother, cake"), whence also "babushka" = "grandmother".
  • Some people say that when a butterfly lands on you it means good luck. However, in Devonshire, England, people would traditionally rush around to kill the first butterfly of the year that they see, or else face a year of bad luck.
