Word Search Diversion Make Your Own

Word searches and crossword puzzles are a bit of a diversion.  Did you have those, "Connect the Dots" books when you were little?  I wonder if those dots pictures fueled creativity or dampened it.  I remember wanting to make pictures of things that did not go with the straight lines and being told that wasn't what the picture was supposed to be.  Thank goodness there are a lot of people who colored outside the lines with nontraditional hues.

I've made a little Word Search for the blog.  It was a first attempt and thought I'd show it to you.  I was doing this when I should be doing other necessary things, but there you go.

Clicking on the images will enlarge them.

If you want a little word search  diversion, make your own   here.  After I made it I gave it the look you see by visiting Picnik .  Both of these are free sites, Picnik has a fee if you want to use their advanced/premium features.  I used the free features.

I'm linking this post to Thursday Favorite Things at Katherines Corner.

I love word search. I have a book that was my daughters in my nightstand and when I need a break I take it out and do a couple of puzzles. Thanks for sharing that info on how to make your own, that would be kind of fun.

Hi new readers, it's a treat that you found me! Happy to find other word and puzzle appreciators (is that a word?)

Val, I have a book of crosswords and searches I bought for my uncle who has since passed away, and I've kept it, taking it out now and again. It's going to be sad to throw it away when I move.

Have fun making your own!
