Create WordArt Online

online wordart maker

Kids love creating WordArt! So we were quite disappointed when we discovered that Office Word and PowerPoint 365 Online had no feature allowing us to make WordArt for our projects. What to do?

A quick search using the term free online wordart maker yielded results. Try it or use Cool Text, one of our favorites.

Cool Text is a great site that students can use to make fun graphic words and phrases. They can format the text with a creative variety of choices such as font, color (including gradients and outline colors), size, shadow, alignment, and output file format. Or they can keep it as simple as typing in the text and clicking “Create”.
