2. start at the circled letter
3. trace the letter path of the first hidden word (path lines can travel up/down, forwards/backwards, and diagonally)
4. once the letter path is complete, locate the starting letter of the next word and continue to trace its path line (use the unscrambled word clues as a guide)
5. repeat steps 3 and 4 until all letter paths are complete (remember path lines go up/down, forwards/backwards and the path lines DO cross)
6. track progress by drawing a line through each word clue (helps to eliminate choices)
