Roald Dahl word search

This free Roald Dahl word puzzle is free to print but is for personal use or classroom use only. Scroll to the end of the post to get the pdf file.

The Roald Dahl-themed words can be found, horizontally, vertically, diagonally, frontwards, or backward! Just to make it that much harder!

I have also added some black and white Roald Dahl themed images for the kids to color in too! Perfect if the kids find the words too quickly!

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!
