Word Scramble Game
Word up! Have the kids ubnacrmsle tshee wrdos!
- Pen or pencil
- Write a long Halloween-related word or phrase, like "werewolves" or "jack-o'-lantern" on the top of a sheet of paper.
- Challenge your kid to make as many words as she can from the letters in the original word in the allotted time. Three minutes is a good start. For example, if her word is "pumpkin" she can spell out "pink," "punk," "nip," "kin," etc.
- Your kid can either play alone or challenge another player and see who can make more words.
- When your kid has finished dissecting the first word, move on to another long, Halloween-themed word or phrase, like "sugar high" or "dental statement of cost."
- Once your little genius masters that version of the game, switch things up! Scramble a Halloween-themed word and let the kids decipher what the jumbled letters spell. For example, "hgsto" is ... (Hey, you're good at this!)
- This is a good Halloween party game. If the kids aren't too wired on mini-Snickers, get them to sit down for a battle of words. You can build their brains as you destroy their teeth. It's all about yin-yang!
