I got this idea from the post by Liz Eagan for a make your own word search. I created a word search book for my son Liam for Christmas.  It took a little time to make the grid, but then I was able to use it as a template to make many word searches for the book.  I kept it pretty simple as this will be his first word search experience.  

I decorated the cover with a tactile Christmas tree.

I chose words that he liked and cared about and grouped them together into the following categories.  I kept the lists small (4 or 5) since he is just starting out.  

Christmas words:

Jesus, manger, star, Mary, Joseph

Family words:

Liam, Grandma, Finn, Mom, Papa

Teacher words:

Joe, Leslee, Bolton, Mary, Shaun

Favorite activities:

swimming, park, lake, walk, slide

Favorite foods/snacks:

pizza, chicken, water, candy, chips 

Favorite toys/things:

beads, buttons, ball, books, play

As you can see from this list, other than the first group of Christmas words, anything that the child likes and is interested in would make for a good word search book!
