I would like to recommend free Eclipse Crossword software. It makes ediatable crosswords + keys. You can import your own wordlists!!!!
You can combine fill in exercises with a wordsearch... See:

I also use free Hot Potatoes software http://hotpot.uvic.ca/
to create interactive multiple-choice, short-answer, jumbled-sentence, crossword, matching/ordering and gap-fill exercises for the www.

CAN YOU RECOMMEND A GOOD WORSEARCH SOFTWARE to make a wordsearch with a hidden message?
DO you know any software which makes EDITABLE wordsearches - the wordsearch can be edited in MS Word or Excell??

I bought discovery puzzlemaker which you can also use online. (I think) to make wordsearches with hidden clues.

Here is a tool which makes wordsearch puzzles with any words that you wish - http://www.armoredpenguin.com/wordsearch/

For making puzzles in the classroom, I use a simple blank grid (prepared beforehand by myself) which I give to my students and ask them to fill the grid with, say, the new words of the previous lesson. They write in the words and fill the rest of the squares with meaningless letters. Then they exchange the puzzles and each tries to solve the classmate �s puzzle.
