Easy Thanksgiving Word Search Printables Post Preview: This set of easy word find printables is a great Thanksgiving activity for elementary-aged kids. Each puzzle features eight words on a Thanksgiving or fall theme plus a picture of the same theme to color afterward.
It honestly feels like I was just posting a set of easy Halloween word search puzzles, but apparently that was a month ago. What the heck? Where has the time gone?
We have all been busy with work, school, a school play, and a number of other things, and I’m currently dreaming of Thanksgiving. Our daughter’s school and our sons’ college all have three days off that week and we have absolutely no plans for the break right now. It sounds wonderful! (And I’m hoping we remain planless.)
If you’re also gearing up for Thanksgiving, I have a set of free Easy Thanksgiving Word Search Printables today.
Note: The text links to download the word search printables are toward the end of this post. There is also a link for each individual puzzle in the section of this post about that printable.
These Thanksgiving and fall word finds are part of the series of fall-themed easy word search printables that include: an Apple Word Search, an Acorn Word Search, an Owl Word Search, and a Halloween set of word finds that included a Pumpkin Word Search, a Spider Word Search, a Ghost Costume Word Search, a Witch Word Search, and a Candy Word Search.
Today I’m sharing the last three easy fall word finds in the series together in one post.
- Thanksgiving Word Search Printables for Kids(these are Thanksgiving-specific, not niche topics like these, and they are larger puzzles with more search terms)
- Color Your Own Thanksgiving Bookmarks Printable
- Turkey Coloring Pages for Kids and Adults

Easy Thanksgiving Word Search Printables for Kids
If you’re not a regular reader here, you might not know that there are a ton of free word search printables here. They cover lots of different topics and there are several different levels of difficulty amongst the word searches. There is a little something for everyone. Definitely check them out!
As I mentioned earlier, these Easy Thanksgiving Word Search Printables are part of a small series of fall-related word finds that I have been posting this autumn. All of these word search puzzles are easy with small puzzle areas and just eight search words. In all of these, the word search portion is within whatever shape they are about and kids can color it afterward, so it’s like two activities in one. Score!
These Thanksgiving-themed puzzles include pictures and the following themes: turkeys, leaves, and corn.
Okay, yeah, I know – leaves and corn might be a stretch for Thanksgiving. But, I really wanted to get this series finished up and I thought they went together pretty well.
If you’re looking for some more general fall word search printables, you might like this Fall-themed Word Search Printable that is larger and great for older kids and adults. But if it’s specifically for children (especially elementary-aged children), you might also like the Easy Fall Word Search Printable Set.
If you’re looking for something more specific to Thanksgiving, however, I also have this set of Thanksgiving word search puzzles that only have words about Thanksgiving.
