Making Palindromes

These palindrome games can help to build your child's vocabulary.


  1. A palindrome is a word, phrase, or sentence that reads the same backward and forward, such as dad, evil olive, and Madam, I'm Adam.

  2. How many palindromes can you and your child think of?

  3. If you like, make up riddles with palindromes as answers, for example: Q: What do you say when something amazes you? A: Wow!
