Memorial Day is a federal holiday and is always celebrated on the last Monday of May. I have created this FREE Memorial Day word search printable for you to download and enjoy with the kids.
Memorial Day is different from Remembrance Day (or Veterans Day) as it is a day where we remember those who died and made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Veterans Day is a day celebrated around the World on November 11th to thank and honor ALL who served regardless of whether they died or survived.
Word searches are an excellent homeschool activity for when the kids just need a break. They are educational, but more importantly, they are fun. They are of course not exclusively for homeschool! This free printout can also be enjoyed in schools.

Memorial Day Word Search
The Memorial Day words can be found, horizontally, vertically, diagonally, frontwards, or backwards! Just to make it that much harder!
I have also added some black and white Memorial Day-themed images for the kids to color in too! Perfect if the kids find the words too quickly! I have also added the answer sheet, some of the words are a little tricky to find!
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 15 Memorial Day words to find:
For even more printable fun on Memorial Day, I love the look of these games, quizzes, and trivia.
