Free printable summer word search puzzles for kids

Whether you have a young child who is just starting to learn to read or an older sibling who loves a fun challenge, there are two difficulty levels available to download.

Below you will find an easy download button for each worksheet.

Additionally, at the end of this post we have a larger download including the summer word search and corresponding answer sheet (in case anyone needs a little help!).

Summer word search is easy

The first level is perfect for younger children, with larger fonts and simpler word lists. This word search includes vocabulary easily associated with summer fun, such as fishing, camping, and swimming. As children search for these words, they not only build reading skills but also solidify their understanding of the season’s themes.

This smaller word search is a great choice for beginning readers. The puzzle contains 10 easy-to-read words for young children. Also, there are no crosswords.

Summer word search: 20 words

For older children, the second level offers a more complex puzzle. The fonts are slightly smaller and the word lists include longer words suitable for more advanced readers.

There are 20 summer words hidden in this puzzle! Can you find them all? Grab this print edition for stronger readers who are ready to take on more challenges. The words in this puzzle can go in any direction except the opposite.
