Hi I am able to create the word search easily but then want to include it into our monthly newsletter. How do I copy and print onto newsletter document? Thanks for any help.

Hi Louise!

The easiest way would be to use the tool above, and once it's been generated, save it as a PDF.

To do this, you just print the page like you normally would when using a printer, and instead of printing it using your printer, you select "Word PDF", or "Adobe PDF", or "Save as Document".

Once you have it as a PDF file, you should be able to add it insert it into a newsletter.

I hope that helps!

I have already built a few Word Search puzzles with this tool. It works well as my residents love to have themed puzzles for both crossword and word search every week. With both create options I am able to have the same theme for both puzzles even if there are not already ones here.
It is also really handy to be able to create puzzles for holidays or special events we celebrate here in Canada that would not show up on a different country's site.

I like to use a blank word search grids

where the residents can actually make word searches and you can copy them and distribute them

Love this create your own puzzle. I created one for our council on aging and will start playing before lunch on my new "Word Search Wednesdays". I have theme of my COA and words like volunteer, lunch, fitness, fun etc. I cannot wait to see how they love it!

Will these word searches always be available as I want to do monthly, otherwise I will need to create a bunch for the year!

Thanks, so happy I would this site
Talita 2nd Mar 2020
Thanks for your feedback Brenda - this sounds wonderful!

Word searches are not currently saved but we will certainly look into this and get back to you!

I think it is awesome that you have a Create My Own Word Search! My mother-in-law needs the simpler format as the easy one that you have provided. I really like the choices that you provide such as words only forward. My mother-in-law does better if the words to be searched are listed in two columns (DOWN, ACROSS.) So, I have a question: Is there a way that I can make the list of the words in two columns, one for DOWN and one for ACROSS? The other thing I noticed that when I searched for my words I used a green pen for the words that were DOWN and a red pen for words that were ACROSS. So my second question is there a way that I can add color to the words list? Thanks so much!
Susan 15th Jan 2020 Activity Director
Hi Judy
You may want to try using this flying word search grid
First you fill in the words in any color and in anyway you want
Then put extra letters around the words
You can then have two columns of words in any color and however many columns you want
I have asked residents to make word searches doing this and I have made some myself
They are fairly easy and the residents really like them
Judy 15th Jan 2020 Speech Language Pathologist
Thanks Susan for your help. I think you mean that I print the blank grid, fill in the words by hand, add my list by hand, etc. Is that what you mean? Thanks
Susan 16th Jan 2020 Activity Director
Yes Judy that’s exactly what I mean I have used it with great success

I will try this for my residents...will see the result.
Anita 30th Nov 2012 Leisure and Health Therapist
Thank you very much for this puzzle, my residents who love playing word-games, will be quite thrilled to go hunting for their names. I will put the alphabet down the left-hand-side and number across the top so that they can call out a grid reference when trying to direct me to where they believe a name in the list starts. I love the ideas on this site - Thank you again :-)
