St. Patrick’s Day Word Search: Small

The first level is perfect for younger kids, with larger fonts and simpler word lists. These word searches introduce basic vocabulary associated with St. Patrick’s Day, such as “clover,” “saint,” and “lucky.” As children search for these words, they not only build their reading skills but also reinforce their understanding of the holiday’s themes.

This smaller word search is a great option for beginning readers. The puzzle contains 10 words that are easy for younger kids to read. Also, there are no diagonal words.

St. Patrick’s Day Word Search: Large

For older kids, the second level offers a more complex puzzle. The fonts are slightly smaller, and the word lists include longer words and more intricate St. Patrick’s Day terms. These word searches provide a greater challenge, encouraging children to stretch their vocabulary and search for hidden words they may not be familiar with.

There are 16 St. Patrick’s Day words hidden in this puzzle! Can you find them all? Grab this printable for stronger readers who are up for more of a challenge. The words in this puzzle go every way except backwards.
