    Once all the words are found, try to figure out the word made up of the remaining letters. That makes it easier to find the correct letters. Circle those letters.

Tips

  • Try to relax, the words will seem to appear more easily that way.
  • Plurals are very easy to do by accident.
  • The same word will probably not appear twice, so check that it isn't part of a larger word that is on the list.
  • It's very important to the final solution that the correct words are crossed out and the proper letters are left unmarked.
  • If you do accidentally cross out a letter, mark it and try to find the word it belongs to.
