Welcome to our Word Search Puzzle Generator! It’s a super fun and educational online tool that kids absolutely love. You can choose from a bunch of preset word lists, like Colors, 50 States of the USA, Fruits, Vegetables, Jobs, Popular foods, or Sports. We’ve made these lists for your convenience, but you can also type in your own words. That way, you can create a personalized and totally free printable worksheet just for you!

Easy and fun word search generator

The possibilities are endless! You can generate tons of unique and customizable word puzzles in just seconds. You get to choose the size and difficulty level that suits you best. Our Word Search Generator has different difficulty levels, so you can adjust the number of rows and columns and even decide how the words are placed. They can go horizontally, vertically, and even diagonally – forward or backward – it’s all up to you!
But wait, there’s more! You can spice things up even further. You have the option to allow letter sharing in your puzzle or keep it clean and simple. Plus, you can choose between uppercase or lowercase letters. Also, we’ve added a special feature that lets you add a name at the top of the page.

  1. I’m trying to make a word search, I put in 20 words and I keep getting a message that says, “You need to choose at least 5 words”
    What does this mean?

    • Hi, Thank you for your message! It seems there’s an issue with the missing comma between words, which is causing the problem with generating the word puzzle. We’ll modify the error message accordingly. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

  2. Nvm my first comment, I figured it out.

    The solution list of words at the bottom should really also be in the same exact layout as the puzzle’s list of words, to make it easy to find. Currently the solution’s list of words seems to just be random and makes it hard to find the 1 word that was, say, in the 3rd row 4th column in the puzzle’s list, for example.

    • Hi Ellie,
      As the first commenter on this page, you get a big virtual hug! Thank you for using our free word search generator and for reaching out! Your observation is really helpful, and I’ll pass it on to see what we can do about it!
      All the best,
