Word searches are always a fun activity, and they can be great practice for early readers too, as the kids strengthen literacy skills while hunting for letters and words. But sometimes word searches that go diagonal and backward can be a bit too tricky for my kiddos in Pre-K and Kindergarten, so I was excited to use these free Summer Word Searches for Kids that are just the right level of difficulty!

Summer Word Searches for Kids
Summer is just around the corner, and that means no school – and it may also mean road trips! Long car rides can be an overwhelming endeavor, and you should always be prepared with some activities for little ones. It will make the ride much more enjoyable (for them, and especially for you!).
These Summer Word Searches are not only great for those long car rides, but they’re also fun for those last weeks of school, too!
Each of these word searches will print on a single page. And because they were made in “easy” mode with no diagonal or backward words, they are great for any early learner!
A lot of things come to mind when you think of summer. This pack of printable Summer Word Searches includes five unique and fun summer themes!
- Summer Fun – A word search full of all the things that make summer exciting
- Camping – Yep, this is a great way to spend your summer vacation
- Beach Time – All those words that come to mind when you think sand and beaches
- Summer Treats – Those tasty treats that help beat the heat in summer
- Summer Weather – All sorts of weather words that relate to summer
All 10 words on each printable can be found either horizontally or vertically. Nothing too tricky! You can even grab them with or without the gridlines!

Our favorite way to complete these word searches is with highlighters. But any writing tool works great!
You could even laminate these printable word searches or place them in a dry erase pocket sleeve. Just give your kids a dry erase marker to start hunting for summer words! When they are done, they can erase their word searches and trade with a friend.
These engaging Summer Word Searches for kids will bring the summer fun to your classroom, home, or car!
