how to play

Flick through some magazines
Take a look through some books or magazines and spot some words you like the sound of.
Write the words down
Leave some space around each word as you'll be cutting them out. You'll need lots of words, try collecting at least 20.
Cut the words up
Ask a parent to help with this bit. Try cutting them up leaving the nice sounding endings, like -LICIOUS, -OODLE, -ING.

Now mix them up!
Move the word pieces around joining them to other word pieces. You can also try adding a word ending to a full word like STAMPEDE-OODLE. Hey presto, you made a new word!
