Word Games

I know I've blogged about some of these games before, but in the interest of suggesting more ideas for the workboxes I am sharing them once again. You know...all together.

Anyone remember this one? I used to play this a lot with my mom when I was in elementary school. Oh yes...nothing like letter cubes for bunches of fun!

Have you played Bananagrams? This is a game where you and the other players begin with 21 tiles and you have to build your own crossword. If another player uses up all their tiles they will yell Peel! And everyone has to draw a new tile. The game ends when all the tiles are gone from the middle and the winner has used all of his tiles. This is a regular around here. E10 can win against Dan regularly. E10 is a wicked gamer. So...look out. I'm just sayin'.
Other word games we have:
  • Scrabble
  • Super Scrabble
  • Scrabble, Jr.
  • Boggle, Jr.
  • Boggle
Boggle, Jr., Bananagrams, Spill and Spell can be played individually or you can always have two kids play together if you have the right age range at your house.

We LOVE Bananagrams! I haven't heard of Spill and Spell before, but it reminds me of a game my grandma used to have.

I recently found your blog and just so you are my hero:) Seriously, you have given me an oomph in my homeschooling step with all your fun ideas!

I've ordered the funtastic frogs and now I'm excited for Spill and Spell.

Thanks so much for sharing it all with us!
