Vegetables can be a tough topic for parents. Kids either love them or hate them. Either way, it really helps children to learn all about them. Word searches can help with that! This vegetables word search is great for kids who are trying to learn the names of all of the many vegetables out there.
If you look closely, you will notice that this word search includes items that are technically fruits. But since they are treated as vegetables, I included them here.

Vegetables Word Search
This free word search printable contains 15 words that are all common vegetable names. 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.
