Make a Crossword for Dad
To make a crossword puzzle for Dad, think about the things he likes and the things you love about him.
What Dad Enjoys
To make a puzzle about the things your dad enjoys, start by writing down a list of his favorites and hobbies. Use a list like this, or think about his everyday activities. Does he regularly watch sports? What team does he root for? What books are on his bookshelf? How else does he spend his free time? These are all things to think about.
Once you have a list of Dad’s favorites and hobbies, begin searching for trivia about that topic. If his favorite movie is The Godfather, search for famous quotes or trivia about the movie. Then, turn them into clues and answers for your puzzle.
The more things you write down on your list of Dad’s favorites, the more puzzles you can make!
