Giant Crosswords

Giant Crosswords
What You’ll Need:

cardstock, paper or cardboard cut into equal sizes ( 8” x 8” squares shown)
markers, crayons or colored pencils

Puzzle players, we’re takin’ it outside! You might call this the ultimate lawn game throw down ‘cause the whole family can take part in creating the giant letters, then toss ‘em on the grass to make words. Give each other clues or see how many words you can make out of the letters. It can also help with letter identification for little ones!

Let’s Get Started!


Cut the squares out of cardstock, paper or cardboard. To create your own game like Scrabble or Bananagrams, you’ll need 144 letters.
J, K, Q, X, Z (2 each)
B, C, F, H, M, P, V, W, Y (3 each)
G (4)
L (5)
D, S, U (6 each)
N (8)
T, R (9 each)
O (11)
I (12)
A (13)
E (18)

Color each letter so it really stands out.

Time to cross some words!
