Kids like to keep busy. Make sure yours have options other than the television and video games! Making word search puzzles for friends and family is one great hobby. But your kids don't have to make ordinary puzzles with a random set of words. Use one of the ideas below for a puzzle with a twist! Kids can learn new words, practice their spelling, make cool gifts, and have fun while making these puzzles.
The secret is in what search words you use; the more parallel to your needs, the closer you get. Be specific in your search terms. A place to begin might be: free calendar formats". If that doesn't give you what you want try adding words like Excel, Word, PDF, printable, or monthly, yearly, weekly, full page, quarterly, portrait/landscape, etc. For example: "free 2008 printable Excel calendar spreadsheet" or "calendar word download 2008 annual free" are more specific. Most big sites that offer calendars will have more than one year so the " is not necessary, but a web page with 2010 in it's keywords, description and page title will frequently be closer to what you really want.
