I love word searches. Creating and sharing themed word searches is a lot of fun, too! That’s why I created this spring word search printable for you to use at home or in the classroom. I hope you enjoy!

A preview of two spring word searches on a wood background. One has pastel dots in the background and the other word search for spring is in black and white with coloring elements.

The words in this puzzle are all spring-related and not specific to any spring holiday. You can find an Easter word search here with both secular and religious versions.

Benefits of word searches

Word searches aren’t just an easy substitute teacher activity or a screen-free way to keep your kids busy for a few minutes.

Some word search benefits include:

  • Improved letter and pattern recognition
  • Improved spelling
  • Improved working memory
  • Improved attention to detail
  • Improved focus and concentration skill
  • Increased vocabulary

Word searches are particularly beneficial for elementary students and English language learners. Word searches can be valuable for adults, too, especially older adults.

And, of course, word searches are an easy no-prep way to keep your kids busy. They’re portable which makes them a great screen-free activity for doctor’s visits, restaurants, and airplane trips.

To make the word search easier to use on the go, make sure to pack a clipboard for your little one!

These printables are available free for personal and classroom use. You are welcome to make as many copies as you’d like for your own children, students, scouts, etc. as long as you are personally organizing the activity.

Please do not redistribute the digital files or printouts to other adults for use with activities they are organizing. Just send them to this page so they can download their own copies! (Yes – it’s fine to leave them with a substitute teacher. Please just don’t give them to other teachers for their classroom use. Thanks to the considerate folks who’ve asked for clarification!)

A quick and easy way to share these word searches is by taking a second to Pin them now. Follow this link to open the Pin on Pinterest for super easy Pinning!

Both word searches have the same set of words and share an answer key. There are 20 spring-related words to search and find. Words can be hidden forwards, backwards, and on the diagonal. Words can also share letters with other words. Don’t worry – the answer key is included!

Download links are located below each preview image. I’ve highlighted the links with a grey box to make them easier to find! Please do not print the preview image – it’s a low resolution file that will look terrible if printed.
