Video Game Themed Word Search for Kids

Are your kids total video game junkies like mine? Do they love to spend an afternoon playing Minecraft or Mario Bros, or even Undertale? Mine have moved on from the Five Nights at Freddie’s phenomenon to Minecraft and Undertale. They also like video game toys and merchandise too so I figured this free Video Games Word Search would be perfect for them.

I mean what could be better than a video game at this age? Not much I think. They eat, sleep, and breathe games and gaming. But, maybe you stand a chance at getting them to do something a bit more traditional if you print out this video games word search. By now you should be aware this is your headquarters for all the free word searches.


In the summer months I really like to be able to keep the kids busy. Sometimes that looks like them going to camp and other times that looks like the oldest one babysitting. And on really good weeks when I have a break too it looks like all of us going to the beach to have some fun together. This year we are replacing our pool liner and that’s a big expense, so we are likely to be close to home most of the summer unless there are a few travel writing trips that I am invited on. I have one this month and I look forward to sharing that soon.

I have found over the years that word games and crossword puzzles are great for the summer months too. They are easy to find and free and things like this video game word search help us to save money.


If you are like me, then  you are old enough to remember when video games first started with Atari and a few other oldies. Back then Pacman was the hot game. We had Tetris and a few other quirky games that now seem pretty comical compared to some of today’s apps and games and offerings.

For a few more fun activities and printables you should take a peek at my Pinterest Free Printables board. There are several word search printables and crosswords there too. Now tell me – are your kids into word search printables? Or are they into video games? Or do they like a healthy mix of both?
