Word searches are a fun, low prep, educational activity to share with your children are students. I hope you enjoy this free printable Advent word search and that it brings you joy this Christmas season!
This Advent word search has two versions: one with color images and an ink-saving black and white word search! You can use them with your children or students even if you personally stink at word searches because there’s also an answer key for you.
This word search is available free for personal and classroom use. This includes Sunday school classrooms, scout troops, etc. As long as you’re helping organize the event and giving the printables to participants for free, it’s fine!
Please don’t redistribute the digital files or printed copies to others – simply refer them to this page so they can download their own copy.
This word search is a great way to teach your children or classroom about Advent and words, people, and concepts associated with the season. There are no generic secular Christmas words – they’re all words that relate to the Advent season so you can use this game as a teaching tool.
The puzzle includes 20 Advent words to search and find, including:
Words can be hidden forwards, backwards, and on a diagonal. Younger children may need help finding the words. It’s a great opportunity for your children to practice teamwork!
