Mum went to a blogging award night on Friday and she came home with this great new game in a banana case for me. It is called Bananagrams and it's a bit like Dominoes and Scrabble.
We played it on Saturday and it is really fun. The rules are super easy and I got good really quickly. You just make words and see how many you can make and the quickest person wins.
Mum won first and then I won and then dad played and he won. We taught granny as well. Grandad didn't do very well, he doesn't like words much and I beat him.
Mum and I also played together and we used all the letters and made loads of words, that was fun too.
I like that you shout peel when you need another letter; it's like peeling a banana.
I like the case because it's small and soft and a fun shape and easy to carry around.
I want to teach my friends the game and I think school could have Bananagrams clubs and we should play it in phonics. I might take it to school for show and tell.
Mum says there are a pear game and apple game for younger kids but I don't have those, they sound good though as well.
