There is a very good application for the Mac that allows you to make real crossword and word search puzzles using your own words. The end result is as professional looking as any puzzle you might see in a newspaper or magazine.
If I were still working with kids in scouts or teaching I would consider this as a great tool for making learning fun. The app does most of the work. You have to come up with the words and the definitions.
The app is called Crossword Forge and it is kinda expensive at $49.95, but there is a lot of programming in the background that allows it to present the finished product that it gives. You can download a trial version that lets you check it out, but you can’t print any completed puzzles until you purchase the product.
