The Fun Begins!

An example of a synonym, "talk" and "chat".

While this sounds pretty simple, it's actually a challenge to think of words that have more than one synonym!

This is a fun thinking game for kids.

An adult starts by listing 15 words (more or less depending on the number of players) and reads them out loud so the kids can write them down.

Be sure to keep the words at the age level of the kids. More difficult words should be saved for players who are older.

The adult shouts out "Go" and the players have 5 minutes to write down as many similar words for each word as they can.

At the end of 5 minutes, the adult collects the papers. She crosses out any words that aren't synonyms.

The winner can either be the player with the most correct words or the most letters when they count every letter in all their words.

This is another play idea that parents can join in and play at home with the kids. It's not as easy as it looks!

So, who came out on top? The parents or the children?! Have a great time with this!
