Scattergories Meme

In the blogging world, bloggers play games called “memes.” These games get passed around from blog to blog and spread like a virus throughout the Internet. Some of them are perfect for playing with kids. This one is a game that you can all play together, each child using his or her name to fill in the answers. One of the best ways to encourage word play is to spend time on what looks like idle word associations. These kinds of associations form connections in your brain that help you to become more efficient in thinking of words for the times you need them when you write!
