Joke set up: My word search puzzles appear to be real. They are not. The words on the “find” list are absent from the letter grid, like a second-grader with chicken pox. “Clever and fun!” —Mrs Wright

Want to play one of the most funniest and harmless jokes ever in your classroom? This year give one of my fake word-find puzzles to your smart students and then sit back to watch the fun unfold. Eager to find the words (words that are not there), your puzzle-loving enthusiasts will soon realize they've been duped and will immediately begin plotting their April Fool's revenge!

World's Hardest Puzzles History

“More, please!” —Oliver T

PuzzlesIn 2005, I created my first puzzle in the series (Animals Puzzle #12) and it became an instant, hilarious hit! Parents and teachers shared links to my site on social media and sent me notes asking for more, so I designed an entire series. These precious puzzles are for the tens of thousands of teachers, parents, college professors, and pranksters who come back to my site every April 1 looking for more. Oh, and for the wonderful children!


My special book bundle features 6 hilarious, printable puzzles designed in black ink for quick and easy printing. Reprintable means that you can print a bunch for your classroom this year and next year, too! My license gives buyers endless printing freedom, so please support the artist (me) by purchasing your own copy. I promise that you'll have fun with these puzzles on April Fool's Day for the rest of your teaching career.
