Summer Word Search Puzzle for Kids [free printable]

Sharing is caring! (Pass it along)

Here is a fun activity to keep your kids busy during summer break or help them unwind after their summer camps. It’s a fun, free printable PDF summer word search for kids.




Who is this printable Summer word search for?

It is intended for children in Grades 3-6, but older kids (and even adults) will enjoy it too. Fun for the whole family!

The difficulty level is medium. It isn’t exactly an easy summer word search because it does contain some diagonal words.

It comes in handy on a rainy day or during a road trip (just print it off ahead of time).

And it can be a great activity to do while getting out of the summer sun and maybe sitting near the air conditioner for a bit.
