Word Ladder with Clues Puzzle Maker

A word ladder puzzle has two words in the ladder, one at the bottom and one at the top. You must form a sequence of words (a word ladder). On every step of the ladder you must place a new word that only differs one letter than the previous word.

It is easy to create your own printable word ladder puzzle with this generator. Word ladder puzzles are fun to do, but difficult to make without the help of a program or website. Luckily you can create easily your own word ladder puzzle or load a puzzle from the list. The rules of the game are very simple. The game starts with two words, a begin- and an end word. The students need to change the begin word into the end word by changing one letter of the word at every step. This can be rather difficult. You can help your students to reveil one or more letters of the words in the word ladder. Click in the preview to show or hide letters in the puzzle.

How to use the word ladder generator

First select the word length. Then type the first word on the ladder or click on the 'pick a word' button to select a word from the dictionary. After this you can type or select the next word. It will be easier to use the 'pick a word' button, because you will get all possible words you can use. The webpage will check if the word you typed or choose is valid. If the word on the ladder is not valid, then the background will be red.

How to work with the clues

To help you even more, the website uses a dictionary. When a puzzle word is typed (and click on the next word), the website will look for a definition of the word. When found, it will print it in the clue box behind the word. If the website cannot find the definition or you don't like it, you can change the clue and it will be used on the pdf.

When you don't have the time to make your own puzzle, you can choose one of the many puzzles in the list.
