Word search puzzles are entertaining as well as educational:
- Word search puzzles improve spelling. Just by searching for a word, puzzlers are learning to spell. In fact, they are rehearsing the spelling over and over in their minds as they look for the letters the word contains.
- Word search puzzles improve concentration. A valuable and increasingly rare skill, concentration is required to successfully complete these or just about any puzzle. They really do encourage the brain to stay focused.
- Word search puzzles enhance visual acuity. Eyes that are trained regularly to look for small details will be stronger and more effective in many situations.
- Most importantly, word search puzzles are entertaining! They can really come in handy during doctor visits, long trips in the car, or anytime you are hoping your child can sit still for a while.
