Word Search Puzzle Generator

Here’s our word search puzzle generator for you to enjoy!  Just choose a topic from the drop down menu below, and click “Generate“.  When your puzzle comes up, click on “Print” and let the head scratching begin!

For added fun, below the word search are some bonus words!  If you can solve the word scramble and decode the encoded words below, you will be able to find those words in the word search as well.  

Word Scramble: The left side of the word scramble is your scrambled word.  You need to re-arrange to make a real word.  If you cannot solve it, the solution is provided in the ‘Hint!’ column, but it’s encoded.  You need to use our cipher wheel and set it up so that the scrambled letter is on the outside circle, and the corresponding correct letter is lined up with it on the inner circle.  Which specific encoded letter needs to line up with which specific correct letter is described in the worksheet below.

Cipher Bonus: The top row is the encoded word, and the bottom row is the solution.  We’ve given you the first letter so that you can set up the cipher wheel to match that, and then use the wheel to get the rest of the letters to make the correct word.  Then you can find the word in the wordsearch!

Note: We are working on adding more themes and words to our database so check back often!
