This Santa Word Search is a fun way to exercise your brain. Solve it online or print it out. The online version is replayable. The letters rescramble when you restart.
To begin, click the Open the Word Search button. This opens the puzzle in a pop-up window.
Quick Tip: To increase the size of the letters in the grid, click the +A button.
For many more free word searches you can print out on paper, see my word search printables page.
Instructions: Find and circle the words from the list. Words may be forward, backward, vertical, or diagonal within the puzzle.
The words you need to find are listed on the right side of the puzzle. When you find a word in the puzzle, drag the word with the mouse to circle it.
Find all the words in the letter grid before your points fall to zero. If you give up searching for a word, click the Solve button next to the word. This circles the word in the grid for you.
Note: The instructions below are for the old Adobe Flash version of the puzzle.
The words in the "Words left" list to the right of the word search are hidden in the puzzle. The words can be backwards, forwards, or at an angle.
When you find a word, highlight it by dragging the letters of the word with your mouse. A blue line appears through the word and it disappears from your list.
If you get stuck, click the "Hint" button. The first letter of one of the words will flash on the puzzle. The hint feature can only be used once.
Word searches are one of my favorite kinds of puzzle. I hope you have fun with this Santa-themed one.
