Word Wheels

Word wheel puzzles are fun to do and can be used as a time-filler, a group competitive activity, or a race against the clock! All word wheels work the same way. The aim is to make as many words as you can of two letters or more from the letters in the wheel, using each letter in each word only once, and always using the letter in the centre of the wheel. Each wheel will also contain one word which uses up all the letters.

You'll find some of our word wheels in the Holidays or Themed sections of the site as well as here - and that's a hint as to what the nine-letter word might be! All our word wheels come complete with a solution sheet which gives the large anagram as well as a selection of words which we have found ourselves. Please use it as a guide only.
