Welcome to our family’s first word search puzzle! We are a home school family of nine, and this book was originally a very simple concept. The idea was for some of the children to make up a word search puzzle and then see if the other children could find all the words. The topic of the first puzzle was ice cream. It was so much fun we decided to turn it into this book. Many hours of research have gone into this and it turned out to be a much larger project than we first anticipated. It has been an enjoyable process spending time together as a family working toward a common goal. Now, you get to enjoy the fruit of our efforts. In addition to the words you will look for in each puzzle, there are also other hidden words that have something in common with the subject of that puzzle but are not in each list. Don’t worry; they are in the key at the back. Happy searching!
