Relax! We’ve got you covered. Be “The Absolute Best Grandparents” in your grand kids’ eyes by providing hours of fun when they come to visit!
BORED BOOMERS for Grand Kids Word Search Puzzles use all 26 letters of the alphabet to create 26 fun-filled Word Search puzzles!
If you want to see what the interior looks like, check the image below! It's the old saying, "A picture says a thousand words."
On the left, you can see the words with their definitions. Over on the right is the actual word search puzzle with the rows of words to search for beneath it.
Each letter of the alphabet has its own 'double spread', like the image shown below. We hope your kids will enjoy hunting and learning what the words mean, too!
As stated above, I'm trying to drive home that we not only provide the words, but their definitions, too. Your grand kids can learn the spelling while they hunt for the words AND see what the words mean!
Our puzzle books also include our ‘famous’ bookmark that you can cut out (at the back of the book). No more dog-eared pages!

Parents: Also know that this book is considered “large print” so it’s also great for Grandparents too… yes—large print, so you won’t squint! And if YOU want to solve them? Go ahead. We don't mind.
My goal is for children and adults alike to not just find all the words in each Shapely puzzle, but to appreciate the creativity within the curving outlines itself. I want eyes to light up in the search - whether in thinking strategically about hunting down words or simply admiring my asymmetric lettering compositions. Pleasing both sides of the brain was my aim!
Word searches, also known as word find puzzles, are a type of puzzle where players scan a grid of letters looking for hidden words written in the grid. Here are some details on the origins of word search puzzles:
So in summary, while word search puzzles had roots in printed Victorian puzzles of England, they gained prominence in America in the 1920s/30s via print magazines and books before flourishing in the computer age. Their origins come from creative puzzle inventors, but much is still unknown about the specific designers of the earliest word search grids.
