This page has some general concepts that you may find useful.

There are also some limited copyright issues, which are towards the bottom of that page here. Please do read them. They are not complex!

I also make some comments about the source of material - again please read, especially if you recognise your material! I mean no offense.

Christmas_wordsearches

Some of our folk like word searches, so we have put together some word searches.   Some are a bit more complex.  Have fun!

To print these word searches:

  • You can either simply print them off as they are and you will get one per sheet,
  • Or you can back them but this time use LONG EDGE binding which is probably the default.

Note that some of the word searches also have the answers, so if you want to separate the answers, then print the whole document simply without backing.

These word searches were originally downloaded from here and here and here and here.
