Since St. Therese of Lisieux’s feast day is coming up on October 1st, I thought it would be a great time to share a free printable in honor of her. Since we love word searches, I am sharing a St. Therese of Lisieux Word Search printable.
Even if you see this after Saint Therese of Lisieux’s (also called “The Little Flower” or Saint Therese of the Child Jesus) feast day has passed, she is an awesome saint to learn about all year round!
This free Saint Therese of Lisieux word search is actually part of the 31-page Saint Therese Printables and Worksheet Packet. So, if you already own that packet, you won’t need to download this word search. Please note, however, that this word search is the only free printable that will be released from that paid packet.
Extension Ideas for the St. Therese of Lisieux Word Search Printable
As I’ve mentioned before, I really love the saints and feast days word search printables because I have always enjoyed doing word searches. Plus, I think that these Catholic saints word searches help children become more familiar with the names of saints and feast days, especially those they might not be otherwise familiar with. This could actually be a great excuse to look up more information about that saint or feast day and read more about about them!
You can also extend the learning beyond just this word search activity, if you would like, by asking students to do an activity like finding out one fact they didn’t know before about Saint Therese of Lisieux. Older children can be asked to write a paragraph about Saint Therese of Lisieux or some specific aspect of her life (such as her childhood, her illnesses, her “Little Way,” and so on).
Another activity option could be to make a poster or picture about St. Therese and her life.
Of course, as mentioned before, I also have the Saint Therese of Lisieux printable packet available, which includes things like coloring pages, handwriting activities, this word search, a minibook or fact cards about St. Therese, a crack the code page, a page for children to work on using her Little Ways for themselves, and more.
You can share stories or information about St. Therese of Lisieux, such as in these books:

To the side of the puzzle, there is a sweet drawing of Saint Therese of Lisieux. She was drawn by my sweet husband, Eric. Thanks to Eric for making so many of my Catholic printables more beautiful by using the talents that God blessed him with.
The quick information on usage is that this printable is free to use for personal use (within a family) and a single classroom use only. If you plan to use it in a larger group, please consider purchasing the large group usage of the Saint Therese of Lisieux packet. If you have any questions, please contact me!
