Kids and adults are going to love our free Christmas word search printable.
Christmas for us is the BEST holiday EVER. We absolutely love it.
We start with the Elf on the Shelf at the beginning of December with our North Pole Breakfast, and the activities begin!! If you also have an Elf on the Shelf visit check out our free elf word search too.
These Christmas word search printables are so much fun. We found lots of younger kids’ activities for Christmas, but not so many for older kids.
There are 16 important festive vocabulary words to find relating to Christmas. This is a great way to practice spelling and strengthen vocabulary.
Word search printables are an excellent activity for when the kids just need a break. They are educational, but more importantly, they are fun.

Word Search for Christmas
As we are competitive, we print out a copy of the Christmas word search for each of us and see who can get all of them done first.
As it’s Christmas, the winner will receive a small present. I mean nothing big, but maybe a chocolate coin!
We like to put the Christmas tree lights on, play some Christmas tunes and grab the word search.
Depending on where you are in the World, Christmas time is often cold, wet, and snowy. So put your pj’s on and sit around the fire, with this free Christmas word search, it will certainly put you in the Christmassy mood!
When you have finished with this you are also going to enjoy our free Christmas word scramble.
Christmas Word Search Answers
The Christmas words are horizontal, diagonal, vertical, frontwards, and even backward to make it even harder!
Tip: I recommend either using a highlighter pen or circling around the letters. Do not cross the letters out if you have found a word, as it may be used in another word!
There are 16 Christmas words to find:
- Stocking (check out our favorite stocking stuffers for boys)
- North Pole
- Reindeer (the kids may also enjoy our free life cycle of a reindeer worksheets)
If you are doing this with younger kids they will love our handprint Christmas tree template.
