Printable Word Searches for Girls


Get one of these printable word searches for your little girl’s birthday or other special day. They are best for elementary school-aged kids.

These printable word searches send the message of love and esteem for the child.

I originally made these for sponsored children for sponsors to show how much their kids are loved but these activities are great for any little girl.

What to Find in the Printable Word Searches

The top of the word search features the child’s name and a sentence follows that reads “You are….” Words that complete the sentences are those that must be found in the word search area.

They are:

  • Special
  • Kind
  • Intelligent
  • A Star
  • Talented
  • Loved
  • Blessed
  • Precious
  • Fantastic
  • Unique
  • Brave
  • Inspiring
  • Powerful
  • Beautiful

Language Availability

The word search printables are available in an English and Spanish version. I will be making it in other languages as well as soon as I can figure out the translation!

So far, there are only a few names posted here so if you would like one personalized with a name that is not currently posted just leave a comment at the bottom of the page.

    I got a kick out of seeing my own name on the example… So I can only imagine what the kids will think when they see their name on such a pretty page with all the words about themselves!!! They are going to feel so special…. :o) Thanks so much!

      Lol I totally just chose that name at random for the preview. Seemed like a good model name :D

      Your requests have been updated on the page. Just a warning, these are pretty intense on ink. I should probably post that above..

    Hello! Could you possibly create a Spanish word search for the name Kimberly? I’m putting together her birthday packet this week!

    • justine May 9, 2013 at 5:44 AM · Reply

      Hi Breanne,

      I hope it’s not too late but I’ve uploaded a version for your sponsored child, Kimberly, just now. Even if you miss her birthday I think this word search is still a nice thing to send just to say “I love you”. Have a great day!


  20. Laura June 28, 2013 at 7:30 AM · Reply

    Hey if you could add Mutuyimana to the English verse and Brandy to the Spanish version that would be great. Also if you could add Enos to the boys English version that would be awesome.
