It was a play date of my children with their school friends. After playing all sort of games and toys they got bored. So to keep them engaged we played few interesting English word games. Generally when we can’t go out to playground we play these English word games at home. It is super fun for children to recall and write correct words. There are many games available in the market, but kids get bored with everything after some time. For playing word games you don’t need to buy anything. Just take paper and pencil and start playing with your child. It will be very helpful for improving vocabulary skills and children will enjoy the competition.
