Remember look-and-find activities where you have to find hidden objects in a picture? Here’s something like it that the whole family can have a little fun solving. Call all the kids!
Highlights, an activity book magazine for kids printed in the U.S., has put a twist to the classic look-and-find picture puzzles. This time, you have to find words in the picture, not objects! Hidden in the illustrations are whole printed out words, and it’s the viewers job to find six of them. It’s a bit more challenging than the classic look-and-finds but it’s great fun! Preschoolers just starting out to read will enjoy it immensely.
Highlights has currently posted five of these 6-word look-and-find puzzles on to their Facebook and Twitter pages. We’ve compiled all of them here for your family’s enjoyment.
Remember: look for 6 hidden words in the picture. All the words are related to what's going on in the drawing. We’ve provided clues at the bottom of each if you get stuck. Happy word hunting!
