Step 2: Make a Word Search!

Make a word search! 

It's easy!  Draw some vertical lines on a piece of line paper.  Now, just think of a theme and then come up with words that fit into that theme. For this one, I did Disney characters. Then, I entered the Disney characters into the boxes.  You could come up with a lot more than I did.  As long as they fit into the boxes, horizontal, vertical, diagonal, backwards, then they can be in the word bank.  Now, just fill in the rest of the letters.  Trade and see who can finish theirs first!  Who made the hardest one?  Whose theme was best?  Want more of a challenge, don't use a word bank or tell them the theme, let them figure it out on their own.
<p>good idea, but a little confusing for LITTLE kids</p>

Nice games
Good ideas, well presented. Thanks for sharing;)
Uhhh, In the &quot;Who is driving that car&quot; game someone said he was single, and the other one said he was seeing his boyfriend. Anyway, cool Instructable, I remember a few of the games!
LOL! I meant girlfriend! ROFL

I learned to do the third suggestion when I was young. Slightly different: someone would draw a squiggly and some shapes, and the second person would make a complete picture from the squiggle. <br>8 years later, I still do that activity when I'm with a friend. Both of us enjoy scrathcing our brains to try and create something from the more complex from random squiggles. So i definitely support your variation in your third suggestion. :)
I still play a lot of these games too. Bored waiting for food at a restaurant? I simply turn over my place mat and start doodling. I also have a tendency to snitch the crayons at the hostess station in the front of some restaurants! lol
