Tips and Tricks for Word Scrambles

You certainly don’t need any of these tips and tricks to be able to play this game, but if you want to stir things up a bit check out these tips below!

Playing with Small Children

Your little ones might do best if they’re given an older partner to work with, that could be you, or even one of their older siblings. Because there are words that are a little difficult they would benefit from someone a little older giving them pointers and showing them where to start on some of those bigger words. 

Let your kiddos take the lead. You are just there to offer help when asked. This can be a great bonding activity for everyone playing!

Add a Time Limit

Turn up the heat by putting a time limit on this activity. See who can unscramble the most words in 2 or 3 minutes. This is a great way to have fun and get our brains working even faster! 

Play on Teams

Playing in teams is a great way to get some family unity and bonding going on! It also takes a little of the pressure off of you! If you don’t know the word there’s probably another person that does! Once everyone is divided into teams you can see which team finishes all their words first! 

Offer a Prize

Want to throw in a little incentive for the winner? How about a delicious treat! Winner gets the first pick of whatever yummy goodness you have ready. Here are some great Halloween ideas for you! Enjoy!!
