How long does it take you to find words in a word search? Do they jump out at you right away, or do you methodically seek them out? Either way, playing word searches is a good way to exercise your word pattern identifying abilities, improving your problem solving skills, and improving your vocabulary, all while having fun!
Often found in the daily news paper, word searches, sometimes called word find games, are a type of word game that consist of a grid of letters, some small, others large, and a list of words. The player's task is to find all of the words in the list in the grid of letters, circling each word as they are found. Well made word searches often have an additional anagram puzzle included, in that all of the letters that do not get circled in the found words can be rearranged to discover a special word or phrase.
Many word searches have a theme, with all the words hidden the grid having something to do with the theme, bring an extra layer to the game.
