    Lovatts' puzzles can be completed online. You can choose other days of the week for other types of puzzles.

    These word search puzzles are easy to play and easy on the eyes—just drag the mouse in any direction to select a word out of the puzzle.

    The puzzles here can keep track of the time it takes you to complete it, but sometimes that can be distracting, which is why you can open the puzzle's menu to disable the timer.

    The GSN puzzle also is made to be played online, but you can print it out if you'd like. These word searches seem to be a little more difficult than most but are a lot of fun to play. 

    You can see the topic for today's puzzle, or you can select one from a previous day if you'd rather play with different words.

    Instead of a timer, you have a set amount of points that constantly go down until you correctly find the words in the puzzle.
