Make Your Own Crossword Puzzle
Excel's grid sheet format is perfect for making crossword puzzles you can share with your friends and family. Start by figuring out what words you want to include in your puzzle. Consider basing your puzzle on a theme, such as "things around the house," "cartoon characters," or "animals." Next, layout the words, going across and down, on a piece of paper. It will save you time if you layout the puzzle words first on paper. When you've got your layout ready, you can start making your puzzle in Excel.
