Several years ago, I created a multitude of word search puzzles. You can find word search printables for each month of the year, a variety of holiday themes, and phonics themes as well.

Thanksgiving Word Search Packet
This packet includes 3 word search puzzles, each with 12 Thanksgiving-themed words on each page.
Words can be found vertically, horizontally, and diagonally from left to right.
I first created these when my youngest girls was 6. She was, and still is, and avid coloring fan. I included a nice, large black and white picture on each page for her to color when she finished with the puzzle. I hope your coloring fans will enjoy the pictures as well!
One last note: A few of the words were too long to include in the puzzle. You’ll see words such as ‘Native American’ or ‘sweet potatoes’ that one of the words is underlined.
The underlined word is the one your child will find in the puzzle.
Topics included in this 3-page Thanksgiving Word Search Packet:
- Family Thanksgiving – Words included have to do with a traditional Thanksgiving family celebration. Example words: feast, turkey, cornucopia, and pumpkin pie
- First Thanksgiving Day – Words included focus on the first Thanksgiving celebration with the Pilgrims and Native Americans. Example words: harvest, corn, Squanto, and Plymouth
- The Pilgrims – Words included focus on the Pilgrims. Example words: Mayflower, New World, sickness, colony
Note that I did include the word ‘Indian’ in this packet since that is how the Pilgrims referred the the Native Americans.
