Make Crosswords Online ..... for Free

NB. Before you make a wonderful crossword puzzle and then find out you can't print, TRY it first. Make a really small one and go through all the steps.

Corn Valley Site    My favourite. Simple to use.

Canadian Teacher Site   Great

Discovery School - Puzzle maker

ABC Teach. Nice site, but a pay site now. Ok if you want to use their list. You may not, I didn't.
Puzzle-maker from puzzle-maker
How to use here as a lesson for teachers.
Teach-nology follow the directions for your browser.
Kids Crossword maker uses Java. So need to wait whilst it loads.
NB. Requires IE, useless if you use Firefox. Seems to be quite complex.
For those who like a challenge! [May not be working as last date is 2004.]
Try this one. Looks good.
Includes a word finder

Ed helper

Awesomeclipartforkids This one really appeals to me because of the way you set out the words and clues.
Crosswordpuzzlegames This one is very similar to the one above. It too appeals to me. Also has a vast collection of puzzles to do.
School Candy  Very Easy
Shop Hub I've possible saved the best 'till last. This one has the most options.

To make puzzles You Need To Register. But you can play already made Crosswords, Word Scrambles, Anagrams, Secret Codes for free. Good site!
Pity about the registration, although it is painless and very easy. Could generate spam?

I know, it's not strictly "online", but it may be worth it's price ... free ... as in nothing!
I have downloaded and used "Hot Potatoes" - software. As they say,  "Hot Potatoes is not freeware, but it is free of charge for those working for publicly-funded non-profit-making educational institutions". There is and excellent Crossword maker in their package. Up to version 6 alpha. Try it. Mac versions too!

" EclipseCrossword is the fast, easy, free way to create crossword puzzles in minutes."
