Fun Games to Help Your Kids Improve Their Spelling

Spelling is a fundamental skill. But learning to spell doesn’t have to be a tedious process. Integrating fun games into your child’s learning routine can make spelling an enjoyable and effective learning experience. Here are some all-time favorites you’ll love.


Hangman is a simple yet classic game that reinforces spelling skills. One player thinks of a word and draws a series of blanks indicating each letter of the word. The other player guesses letters. For each incorrect guess, a part of the ‘hangman’ is drawn. This game helps children improve their spelling and vocabulary and think critically about letter patterns and word structure.

Scrabble or Bananagrams

Classic games like Scrabble or Bananagrams are excellent for building spelling skills. They challenge children to think about word construction, expand their vocabulary, and apply spelling rules in a competitive and fun environment. 

Word Searches

Word searches are puzzles where children look for words hidden in a grid of letters. This game helps in recognizing spelling patterns and familiarizes children with the appearance of words. You can create custom word search puzzles based on your child’s grade level or areas of interest to make the activity more engaging.
