Anyone know of a FREE or low cost crossword puzzler and/or word find maker?


Recommended Posts

Well, I guess I am naive. I googled "free puzzler maker" to see if I could find a free resource for making crossword puzzles and word finds for my daughter. I thought this would be a fun way to reinforce vocabulary she is learning.


However, most of what comes up is not really free - and they don't tell you UNTIL after you have already put in your words!!! ARGH!!


I found a few of these a couple of years ago, but I guess no one is offering them for free anymore. That's fine, I have no problem paying for it, but now I am trying to find one that is at least inexpensive.


Any suggestions? If possible I would like to pay under $15. For a really good one that offers a lot of different puzzler makers, I would consider paying more.


Thanks for your help!

Hi Sherry,


I just found this thread and don't know whether you've found a CW generator yet or not.


Someone here directed me to Eclipse crossword. I downloaded it (FREE!) so that I can use it anytime with being connected to the Internet. I'm made crossword puzzles for every single chapter of SOTW 2, 3, and 4 that we did this year. ECW gives you choices of size and font. The only thing I don't like is the box you type into--it is small and hard for my old eyes to see what I type. Therefore I make typos that I don't see until the cw is printed. My students edit them for me, then I go back and correct the original. Unfortunately, there is no spell check at Eclipse. Other than that, I love it. It would be worth your while to check it out.


[ Sherry, are you Semicolon? :) ]
