Word searches are a great way to help kids with their literacy, and most importantly just have a little bit of fun. We are going to share with you a simple free one-pager April Fools wordsearch. Something to help pass the time before 12 noon, so that you are less lightly to be pranked! 😂
We have picked a few different words for this, with an April Fools Day, and cheeky humorous theme. We all love a harmless April Fools prank, don’t we?
What words have we included in our April Fools wordsearch?
There are a total of 18 words within the word search.
They are located in lots of different ways, and you can find them going, diagonally, vertically, and horizontally.
Solutions are also available going both forwards and backwards.
Because some of the words are a little difficult, younger children might need a little bit of help locating the words within the puzzle.
- Funny, and
- Mischief, and
- Jest, and
What does the wordsearch look like?
We have given you the solutions to this in another sheet – just in case you find it hard to locate all the words.
One of the great ways of using this is to get children thinking about synonyms and antonyms while they are working through all of the ideas within this wordsearch.
Some of the areas that the children could think about might include::
- What is a Synonym?
- What is an Antonym?
- Give me a Synonym for Gag? Can you find it in the wordsearch?
- Give me an Antonym for Wacky? Think of a time when you felt like that.
The beauty of this activity is that you can extend it if you have time, but if you don’t, just keep the focus on having fun for April Fool’s Day without the learning!
