It’s here! Tomorrow is officially the first day of spring, which means I can finally roll up my sleeves and start working in my flowerbeds. To celebrate, I’m sharing this Springtime Word Scramble, full of all sorts of mixed-up words for things you might find in a garden, such as:
Things to keep in mind while solving this word scramble:
- You don’t have to go in order. Skip around and do the easiest ones first.
- Don’t let the initial capitals trick you. I just wrote the words that way to make it more challenging to decipher them.
- Think of words you associate with springtime, then scan the list for mixed up letters that match.
- Check out the illustration at the top of the page for extra clues.
I created this free printable party game for a ladies luncheon I hosted for my neighbors a few weeks ago. I normally do this around Valentine’s Day, but we were traveling the first part of February this year, so my annual neighborhood brunch didn’t happen until it was almost March.
So we switched themes. Instead of hearts and candy, we did flowers and gardens. Either way, it’s always a lot of fun! Challenge your family and friends to race and see who can unscramble the most words in the shortest period of time.
You can print the full-sized page, or if you want to conserve paper and ink, try this half-sized version. The answer key is the same for both, which you’ll find on the final page of the PDF (no fair peeking early!).
I hope you’ll have fun playing this game. Once you’re done, be sure to head outside to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine! Springtime is such a splendid time of year, don’t you think?

Thanks, Carol. I’m not sure whether it improved anybody’s spelling, but it definitely encouraged teamwork!
