Word Chain

Children can build their vocabulary with this game, which asks them to link their word to the previous person's word in the chain.

Word Chain


  1. This game requires two or more players.
  2. Think of a category, such as animals.
  3. The first player says a word that fits the category, such as cat.
  4. The next player says another animal name that begins with the last letter of the first player's word, such as tiger.
  5. The next word would then begin with r, and so on. End the game when players begin to repeat words.
