Pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and changing leaf color. The autumn season is one of our favorites. The sweater weather gives us a free pass at slowing life down and spending time as a family inside.

Word searches are great learning tools for kids. They can help kids learn with sight words and vocabulary words. They have also been shown to help with anxiety and nerves as it gives them one thing to think about shut out the rest of the world.
For those not as familiar with word search puzzle, they are typically based around a theme, like the month of October. There is a list of themed words that are hidden in a group of letters.
The object of the word searches is to find all the hidden words. They can be hidden from side to side, top to bottom, or diagonally.
There are different levels of difficulty for the word puzzles based on the length of the word, the number of letters in the puzzle, and the number of words hidden diagonally (this tends to be harder for kids to find).
What is the fastest way to find words in word hunt?
We definitely recommend scanning the puzzle from left to right starting at the top row and looking for the first letter of the hidden words. This will help find most of the words. It helps if you use your fingertip to scan the puzzle or the back of your pencil.
Another helpful hint is if there is a word in the list of words that has letters that aren't used very often. Like q, x, z. These are often easy to spot.
Also, look for the letter pairs once you up your skill level. If you are looking for the word "black cats", scan the puzzle for "bl".
