Make your own word search puzzle
This page allows you to create word search puzzles using your words. It has been used by many types of people, with teachers and students being groups that stand out.
Please enter a set of words. When you are done, hit the "Make Puzzle" button to generate a word search puzzle. Once the puzzle is displayed, you can use the "Printable HTML" or "Printable PDF" buttons to get a clean page suitable for printing with your web browser.
The puzzle that is generated will remain on this server for about two months. If you want to ensure that you have a copy of the generated puzzle, make sure you save a copy.
The check box before each word lets you put words into the puzzle, but not show them in the word list so you can have hidden or challenge words.
Do not check the check box unless you want to hide words.
Some users list their puzzles for all to see.
If you want help with international characters, you can call up an Alphabet chart to use for cutting and pasting letters that are hard to type. This chart will come up in a separate window.
Over the years, I've received many messages from students, teachers, and parents who have used the program for school work as well as a way to give a pleasant diversion from the normal grind.
