This free printable Thanksgiving word search is a fun way to keep your family occupied while you prepare a holiday meal! I get excited about sharing printables for Thanksgiving, which is why there are four versions of this word search.
My mom’s family is Canadian, so I created both an American and a Canadian Thanksgiving version of the word search.
Additionally, I know people like to conserve their colored ink, so there’s a full color version and a black and white coloring page version of both word searches.
By popular request, I’ve just added a new activity for younger children. Stop by this post to check out a free printable easy Thanksgiving crossword!
In case any US readers are curious and don’t know, Canadian Thanksgiving occurs on the second Monday in October, which means it lines up with Columbus Day/Indigenous Peoples Day in the US.

Tips for using your printable Thanksgiving word search
Word searches help reinforce vocabulary and spelling skills, plus they can help your child improve their concentration. (And, of course, they’re a fun way for adults to stay sharp, too.)
I like laminating word searches so you can use the same printables year after year. It’s a good way to make the most of your ink! At home laminating machines are super affordable and pay for themselves in 10-20 uses.
Just store the laminated work searches with your holiday decorations and pull them out again next year!
If you want an even more economical way to make your worksheets reusable, get a set of dry erase pockets. They’re basically super duty page protectors. You can swap out seasonal worksheets and coloring puzzles so you can use the same set of printables on multiple years/with different children.
- Set of 10 Super heavyweight clear erasable pocket, For papers up to 9" x 12"
- Ideal for work stations - no need to replenish paper - just wipe away and start again
- Write on and wipe off, Go green, Use over and over again, Use low-odor dry erase markers (included)
