Free Printable Christmas Word Search

If your kids love all things Christmas and doing word searches then they'll love this free 12 word Christmas word search. It's a great way for children to practice early literacy concepts like letters and spelling with a fun theme. Perfect to use at home for fun, as part of a homeschooling unit, or in class as a group rotation activity, English activity or during free time. 

The free Christmas word search printable download includes the word search page + the answer key page and you can print off as many copies as you need for your children or students.

This word search is designed for K-2 children in prep, foundation, grade 1 or grade 2. It's relatively simple, however there are some bigger words included. Children will need to have basic reading skills and letter recognition to confidently complete the word search.

Once you've printed as many copies of the word search as you need get your children or students to search for the words. The easiest way for them to do this will be to circle or highlight the individual letters of each word as some letters overlap for more than one word.

The words can be found vertically, horizontally, diagonally and some are also backwards so some may be a little trickier than others. Each time they find a word get them to cross off or highlight the word in the word list at the bottom of the page so they can easily see which words are left to find.

If you want to reuse the print out for more than one child, laminate it and get them to mark it off with washable markers or whiteboard markers.


  • Download the free template {below}
  • Print as many copies as needed
  • Laminate for durability {optional}

This free printable word search is saved as a PDF document in A4 size, so it can be downloaded and printed as is to fit to a page in Australia. If you're printing using US letter size you may need to check the fit to page box. 

If you're using the word search as a once off activity simply print off as many copies as needed so each of your children or students have a copy. If you're using the word search in a classroom as a group rotation activity you may want to print a smaller number and laminate them so they can be wiped clean and reused.
