Activity for ages 4 to 6
The sight word game Magic Squares is a perfect example of how a simple activity can be great fun and learning! It’s a guaranteed distraction at restaurants, doctors’ offices and on airplanes. Just print and play this sight word game anytime and anywhere!
To prep, download the printable HERE. You can print either the sight word or alphabet sheet, depending on what your child is working on at the moment.
Write the sight words your child is working on in the boxes.
(If you’re practicing letters, fill letters in the empty alphabet sheet.)
Now you’re ready to play!
Each player picks a different colored crayon or marker. In this example, Player One chose orange and Player Two picked green. The first player draws either a horizontal or vertical line from one dot to another.
Then Player Two draws a line connecting two other dots. Players continue alternating turns. Each time that a player adds a line that completes a square, she reads the letter or word written inside, spells it (if it’s a word), and traces it.
Play continues until all squares have been closed.
The player with the most squares wins the game. Easy peasy, right?!
