How to Solve a Word Search

The goal of a word search puzzle is to find all hidden words. The words can be forward, backward, vertical, horizontal, or at a diagonal in the puzzle.

When you find a word in the puzzle, circle it. Be sure to cross each word off the list as you find it.

Most word searches, including the printable word searches above, have a word list. This is simply a list of the words that you need to find.

Traditional word searches are solved using a pencil and paper. If you print out one of these word searches, that's how you will solve it.

Nowadays you can also solve word searches online in your browser. In the online version, you circle the hidden words using your mouse instead of with a pencil.

Word Search Strategies

There are a few strategies for solving words searches that I have found helpful.

The most common strategy is to go through every row of the word search starting at the top left, looking for the first letter of the word you are trying to find. This can be tedious depending on the complexity of the puzzle, but it does work.

Another word search tip is to look for letters that tend to stand out. These letters include Q, O, U, X, and Z. They are usually easy to spot.

I also like to look for doubles. To do this, identify all the words in the word list that have double letters. For example, the word "HAPPY" has a double "P". Then visually scan the puzzle for the double. You should find it, and the word, pretty quickly.

Word searches are one of my favorite types of puzzle. I hope you have fun with these free word search printables!
