Word games are free, portable and suitable for children of all ages. Toddlers can name objects; pre-schoolers can find simple words beginning with a particular letter, and older children can take turns to name countries or animal beginning with each letter of the alphabet from A-Z. The options are endless, and it’s easy to make up your own games to suit your child’s abilities and interests.
Play ghost. The aim of this word game is not to make a woprd. The first player thinks of a word and says the first letter. Each player in turn adds another letter. They each must have a certain word in mind but cannot say what it is. The object of the game is to avoid being the person who actually makes a word. Other players can challenge if they don’t believe that a suggested letter could feasibly follow. The first play to complete a word or lose a challenge loses that round.
This is the game that I always play when I photograph kids in the park. So they can have fun, play and laugh, that’s how I photograph kids and family. Please take a moment to view all my photos on my website. Have you noticed that they are all smiling or laughing???
