How do you play the “How many words can you make” game?
It’s an easy yet challenging word game for school activities, holidays, or simply playing yourself!
Make words (short or long) using only the letters Halloween -> H, A, L, L, O, W, E, E, N
You can only use each letter once. But because there are two E’s and two L’s, you can use those twice.
Let the kids come up with all the words they can think of and ask them to write them down.
Challenge them to find words with four letters, then five, and so on.
Finally, award points for each word according to its length. Longer words are worth more points than shorter words!
Examples of the words you can make from Halloween
Here are some examples of the words you can make:
Can someone win the “How many words” game, or is it just a fun activity?
This fun game can be both.
You can use it as a fun Halloween activity or a competition by giving a timeline and awarding points.
If it’s a game, the player with the most words or points wins.
How to come up with even more words
Changing one letter is an easy way to come up with even more words. For example, if you find “hat,” you can see if you can form another word by changing the first letter: Hall > Wall.
You can also make the game more challenging and come up with words from the phrase Happy Halloween.
