As we make our way through Lent, there are a lot of words that may or may not be familiar to children. This free printable Lent word search, which also includes words for Holy Week, will offer up a great opportunity for discussions, especially if children would come across terms they are not familiar with.
This printable is perfect for both Catholic children and other Christian children for whom the terms in this puzzle are part of their religious traditions.
Of course, if just a word or two aren’t quite what you’re used to, it can be a great chance to explain that some things have other names in other religious traditions. For instance, maybe you call the Thursday of Holy Week “Maundy Thursday” instead of “Holy Thursday.”
Directions for the “On the Road to Easter” Lent Word Search
The twenty words in the puzzle can be found either running up and down, left to right, or diagonal.
Phrases that are listed in the word bank as one phrase will be found in the puzzle together as well. For example, Palm Sunday will be found in the puzzle as P A L M S U N D A Y.
Words included in the Lenten Word Search Printable:
- Ash Wednesday
- Holy Week
- Holy Thursday
- Good Friday
- Holy Saturday
- Palm Sunday
- Palm Branch
- Forty Days
- Foot Washing
