This word maze includes a list of 19 words.
Solve the Puzzle
1. to reveal the list of hidden words, unscramble the letters in each word clue (note some word clues may have more than one word in the clue, which means that the scrambled letters do not necessarily refer to the number of letters in each word)
2. start by locating the circled letter (this is the first letter of one word clue)
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
5. repeat steps 3 and 4 until all letter paths are complete (remember path lines DO cross)
6. track progress by drawing a line through each word clue (helps to eliminate choices)
