Grinch Inspired Word Search Game

Hi!  Welcome to day 6 of the 12 Days Of Christmas Blog Hop.  Today’s topic is holiday games.  My family loves to sit around after we eat and play cards.  They laugh and laugh and laugh.  I have never been that kind of a game player but I love games like word search.  So, I made a fun, humorous Grinch Inspired word search game.

I love the Grinch and started creating games and Christmas decorations around the Grinch theme a few years ago.  

Now it has become an annual thing for me to a few Grinch Crafts and gifts to the mix each year.  It is so fun and it just keeps getting better and better!

You will also like the Grinch Activity Pack! It is full of coloring pages and more word games based on the original book, movie and song!

This is a fun Grinch Word Search Game that everyone will love to play! -

Grinch Inspired Word Search Game

As I mentioned earlier I am not a loud game person but I like funny games.  I created this game using some of the terrific words from the original movie version of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.  It is my favorite movie to watch during the holidays so I used it to inspire me for several of the 12 Days Of Christmas posts.  

If you missed my Grinch inspired gifts you should check it out.  It is a fun one.  

So, if you like the Grinch be sure to download the printable at the end of this post.  

The size of this game is 8.5 x 5.5 and I have placed two on a page so you can print them on 8.5 x 11 inch paper and cut them in half.

Have fun!

When I click to download the search, I get a bunch of gibberish. Does this require something in particular to be able to download?

@Michelle, I am trying to download this now and it’s a bunch of gibberish! Is there anything different I should do? I love this! So cute!

Hi Jenna, So sorry! I did not see this until today. Did you get the download? I can email it to you but I hope it's not too late.

My class loved this search! However, none of us can find the word "Hoobas"! Could you help?


Tuesday 18th of December 2018

Hi Hannah! You must have downloaded the search a while ago. I have updated it since this was brought to my attention. I tried really hard to make it perfect but I must have missed that word. If you download it again now you will get the correct search. I am glad your class had fun. They did find all of the words! Thanks so much.

I love word searches... my kids get annoyed because I will do them over their shoulders! My son won't even bother to do them on restaurant kid's menus, he just passes it over to me, no matter how easy it is!

That is great. I am not a game player but I do like word searches. You son cracks me up.

I would not allow myself to look at the words because I want to print it and do it! Love a fun Word Search like this!
