Make word search and crossword puzzles from lists of relevant vocabulary words. Puzzles can be any size or shape, and the puzzle generator lets you view different possible fills and pick one you like.
You can either make a puzzle from a list of words and write the clues later, or write the words and clues first and then make a puzzle from them.
The word search generator will try to fit as many words as it can in the grid. You can stop the fill when you like, and view possible alternatives. In addition the program will automatically check against a blacklist of words to avoid: this ensures your puzzle doesn't accidentally contain additional potentially embarrassing words.
You can also target a 'hidden word' - some word or phrase spelt out by the letters that are not part of any of the search words.
Generate these crosswords either as an outline puzzle or with black squares. They can be rectangular or generated in a particular shape. The filler lets you chose which fill you prefer, and to increase/decrease the grid size - for example if you need to fit more words in.
To get you started many theme word lists are supplied, including:
