How to use your printables
First, download your free printable word searches. The links are below the preview images lower down in this post. No email address required!
Next, of course, you need to actually print your word puzzles. I hate using all my ink for a one-off printable, which is why I highly recommend laminating your pages or putting them in a dry erase pocket. A dry erase pocket is basically a super strength page protector.
When you laminate the word search or use a dry erase pocket, your child can do the word search over and over again. Sometimes kids actually want to do the same puzzle back to back. If not, you can stash it away to use again tomorrow or even next year. It’s an easy way to get more mileage out of one simple printable!

There are two versions of this St. Patrick’s word puzzle. One has cute green shamrocks and the other is in ink-saving black and white with coloring page elements. Both puzzles are the same and share an answer key. The words are all related to St. Patrick’s Day or Ireland.
The word searches are free for personal and classroom use. This includes using them with a scout troop, Sunday school class, etc. as long as you are personally involved with the event. Please do not redistribute the digital files or printed copies to others – just send them to this post so they can download their own copies!
The puzzle has 17 word to seek and find:
- St Patrick
Words can be hidden forwards, backwards, and on the diagonal. They can also share letters.
