Hello folks! My goodness, where on earth have the last weeks gone?! Even though the last three weeks have flown by, there is still time to have a little fun in our 7th Birthday Celebration.
First though, if you haven't had the opportunity to participate in our 7th Birthday Celebration yet, you can find the first post published on Jan. 15th, with further details of our seven years in business, the challenge link up and prize list for that challenge, by clicking HERE to check it out. We had a Letter Hunt for Birthday Event #2 that ran from from Jan. 16th to the 21st with a deadline of January 31st and then also offered up a Flash Freebie on Jan. 25th for Birthday Event #3 that you can find HERE if you haven't already grabbed it.
Today, for Birthday Event #4 we have another fun activity planned. This time we have a word search for you to complete but we're not going to make it easy for you because where would the fun be in that!
Below you will find a grid with 14 rows across and the same number down filled with letters. Within this group of letters you will find 20 WORDS ASSOCIATED WITH PENGUINS. Since our focus is on Brrr and his family and friends this month, it is only fitting that our word search contain different kinds of vocabulary words that one might correlate with penguins.
(This Word Search was created over at The Word Search)
What you need to do…First, right click on the image and scroll down to choose the save option associated with your specific browser so that you can save the Word Search Puzzle to your computer. Then you can print it out and start looking for the words contained within.
Use a pencil (or pen if you're really brave) and start looking for words that are associated with penguins. For example, think about their environment, what they eat, what they look like, what they do, etc. That should give you a starting place to begin looking for your word list.
Remember there are 20 WORDS in this puzzle for you to find. We'll even give you your first word on the house:
- Start up in the left hand corner where you see the letter A.
- Read down until you find the third letter which is a D.
- Then, under D you'll find the letters I, V, and E which give you the word DIVE.
Now it is up to you to find the other 19 words!
Once you've come up with as many words as you are able to, please come back and leave a list of all your words in a comment on this post. I'll be leaving comment moderation on this post to ensure that it is fair for everyone.
Of course if we're going to make you go to all that effort to solve this puzzle, we're going to have some prizes for you to win! We're going to have a few different levels for this particular game.
First, everyone who gets ALL 20 WORDS correct, will have their name thrown into a draw and ONE random winner will have a chance to win ONE of the following:
For those who ONLY get between 15 and 19 words correct, your name will be thrown into a draw and ONE random winner will have a chance to win:
- $9 worth of images from the Penguin section in the store.
For those who ONLY get between 10 and 14 words correct, your name will be thrown into a draw and ONE random winner will have a chance to win:
- $6 worth of images from the Penguin section in the store.
For those who ONLY get between 5 and 9 words correct, your name will be thrown into a draw and ONE random winner will have a chance to win:
- $3 worth of images from the Penguin section in the store.
Seems like pretty good incentive for joining in, doesn't it?! Well, I hope that you agree and decide to join us during this special event to help celebrate our 7th birthday!
You will have until Friday, February 14th, at 8:59 p.m., PST, to complete the word search and submit the words you come up with, in a comment on this post. Please note that is possible that you may find words that are unintended. Only the 20 words from our master list will be accepted as correct guesses.
There is still a week left so it is possible we might just have one or possibly two more events planned before our month long celebration ends on Feb. 14th. So, be sure to pop over once and a while during the next week! Better yet, sign up to receive our posts by email or through Bloglovin' so you don't miss a thing!
Happy crafting until next we meet,
