>#87: Make Your Own Crossword Puzzle

>Either find a kids’ crossword puzzle to complete or make your own. (The only problem is that you already know all the answers when you make your own–so make one with a friend and trade.)

Materials needed: graph or plain paper, pen, ruler.

You can make a crossword puzzle on graph paper, and use the lines that are already there by tracing over the ones you want with pen or pencil.

There are also free programs on the Internet that will make crosswords puzzles for you. You type in the words as well as the clues and it organizes and creates your puzzle. Print it out and see if you can do it!

This activity promotes literacy, logic skills as well as puzzle solving skills.

Playtime is more fun when it's shared with others. Share this post with your friends.
