A printer and scanner if available can translate these into hours and hours of creative silence. Copies can be duplicated in as many times as the child wishes to enjoy the pursuit, perhaps using and changing colors on the same picture as he pleases. These same pages can later on, with some help from mom or dad, be cut out and turned into an improvised jigsaw puzzle. And while on the subject, the same cut outs can be used as wall decors for the child's room, or as colorful covers for their notebooks and folders.
A parent or teacher wanting to expose children to word search puzzles could of course buy a printed book full of word search puzzles, but the problem with this is that you don't get to choose the words.
