As we homeschool we are always looking at new and fun ways to learn. I have put together 14 free holiday words within words worksheets for you to enjoy with the kids.
This is such a great educational activity, but it is also super fun. What I love about this printable is it is suitable for kids of ALL ages, and adults. Have a race with the kids and see who can find the most new words.
Feel free to print them all out at once, or just print off the holiday you are working on. To look at all of our educational holiday activities check out our list of over 150.
There is space for up to 40 new words, in the rules on the worksheet it says the words must be 3 letters or more. But of course, if you are playing this with younger children either 2 or 3 words should also be allowed.
It is so much harder than you think as well! Even I started confidently and allowed myself 3 letter words after the first 25!

Finding Words Within a Word Worksheet
There is space for over 40 words to find within each word (I have checked and there are well over that number for each word. The hardest is Easter but there are still over 80 words with 3 letters or more than can be made.
