“A Christmas Crossword Puzzle for Crossword Puzzle Day–December 21, 2013” by Linda Martin Andersen

“A Writer’s Playground”–A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.

Crossword Puzzle Day:  21  Do you like crossword puzzles?  Do you complete the ones in the newspaper?  Do you buy crossword puzzle books?  You can create your own at  www.puzzlemaker.com or other sites. 

For ten years, I developed a variety of activities for children’s bulletins for my church.  At times, I created Crossword puzzles based on the sermon theme and scripture. This service project brought me great joy.  

Here is a Christmas crossword puzzle I’d like to share.  Maybe, you’d be interested in creating activities for children in your church.  Perhaps a youth group would like to volunteer in this way.  

Christmas Crossword Puzzle–Luke 2: 8-12

Joan Y. Edwards, a dear friend and published author, offers Gospel-related crossword puzzles with devotions for all three liturgical cycles/years for Bible study on her website. Play and solve puzzles online or print them out. If you want to print multiple copies, please remember to ask permission. Check here:


Enjoy Crossword Puzzle Day.  Create a puzzle.  Solve a puzzle.  Share a puzzle. 

Thanks for visiting “A Writer’s Playground.”  I’d love to hear your comments.  Let others know how you use crossword puzzles–for learning new vocabulary words, spelling word lists, and creating comprehension questions for stories.  Come again soon.  Bring a friend.
