Have a Blast with This Awesome Winter-Themed Activity
This year (2019), the official start of the winter is December 21. How will you celebrate the start of this season with kids?
My five boys get such a kick out of celebrating a variety of seasonal and fun holidays. We use our free Calendar of Fun Holidays for Kids to Celebrate as part of our homeschool morning time. The boys and I love to chat about these fun days and think of new ways to incorporate the celebration into our learning fun.
I keep future monthly calendars in my homeschool planner. My boys enjoy looking ahead so they can get excited about what’s to come!
Since my boys have recently become obsessed with word puzzles (and I’m loving the positive effects on their learning), I’ve been creating new versions for seasonal and holiday fun. This Winter Word Search is being added to the mix! It’s a fantastic way to boost free time and keep kids off screens, too.
Wonderful Ways to Make This Winter Word Search Even More Fun!
Wondering if your kids will turn their noses up at a word search activity? Not all kids think these types of word puzzles are fun and that’s okay. But, don’t give up hope!
A winter word search puzzle is a fun way to introduce your kids to winter-themed words. These types of printable word search puzzles help your kids work on word recognition, spelling skills, and more. I love having simple (and free!) ways for kids to enjoy a fun indoor activity, especially when winter weather hits!
Here are some creative ways to bolster the fun of this Winter Word Search and make it a fun challenge:
- Fun writing utensils: There’s something special about using a glittery gel pen, colorful marker, or sparkly highlighter.
- Play seasonal music: Put together a playlist of winter-themed songs to play in the background while your kids work on their word search. The Kiboomers share this fabulous Winter Songs Playlist for toddlers through kindergartners. Rocking the Playroom shares an awesome Kids’ (and parents’) playlist of Winter songs.
- Add a bit of a challenge: Use a timer or stopwatch. You can record how fast it takes to complete the word search or give a specific time limit to see how many words can be found in that amount of time.
- Keep the fun going!: Brainstorm other winter-related words that you could add to this word search.
- Spell the words out loud: Encourage kids to do this for fun spelling practice.
- Special prize (optional): Provide a Winter-themed sticker, stamp, pencil, or eraser when the word search is done.
- Enjoy a cup of hot cocoa or other special winter season treat as you work on the free printable word search puzzle.
