Summer Word Search

This summer word search contains 15 words all relating to the season. The words can be found horizontally, vertically, and diagonally, plus they can be forwards or backwards.

Ways to Use This Word Search

  • Have your child circle or underline the words as they find them. Use a pencil, colored pencil, crayon, or marker.
  • If it’s easier for your child, he or she can use a highlighter or pale marker to highlight the words instead.
  • Another option would be to have your child dot each letter in the word with a bingo dauber. They are always lots of fun for kids!


  • Printer Paper and a Printer
