How to Play this Christmas Word Game
To Play this Christmas Word Game, players simply write down as many different words as they can make with the letters from Merry Christmas. They can only use each letter one time in each word.
This word game is a bit like a word scramble and similar to word searches, only you are using letters from Merry Christmas.
This game is age appropriate for first grade and up, as children need to be able to spell words in order to play.
You may like to have everyone start at the same time and then set a timer to see who can create the most new words within a certain amount of time. Or you can have children work in pairs to come up with words together.
Alternatively, you could have the first person to hit 20 words be the winner. So many fun ways to play this game!
Consider setting some ground rules as you see fit. For example, you might like to say that you can’t write down Merry or the word Christmas as new words. Or another rule could be that words must be 3 letters or more, etc.
It’s your game, you make the rules!
It’s a bit unbelievable, but there are over 300 words you can create with these letters!
Here’s just a few of the words you can create:
Alright! Now that we’ve talked about how the game works, let’s dive in and grab these printable activities!
