How to play How Many Words Can you Make from Merry Christmas
This Christmas game is fun and easy to play. First, grab your download from lower down in the post. You'll see a row of purple arrows pointing the way.
Print the pages you want. There are four pages:
- Easy version in color
- Easy version in black and white
- Harder version in color
- Harder version in black and white
The only difference between the "easy" version and "harder" version is the number of lines. There are hundreds of words you can make from "Merry Christmas." Having 300 spaces on the page would be pretty impractical, though!
Use the sheet with 10 space for elementary students and the sheet with 30 spaces for older kids and families. If anyone finds more than 30 words, they can flip the page over and write on the back.
Rules for "how many words can you make from Merry Christmas"
The main rule for the game is that you can only use each letter in "Merry Christmas" once for each word you come up with.
- You could use three letter "r"s in your word, two "m"s, or two letter "s"s because each letter appears multiple times in the phrase Merry Christmas
- Other letters that appear once, such as C, can only be used once.
Like with other word games, proper nouns are generally not allowed. You could permit proper nouns, if you'd like.
For an added challenge, you can have everyone cross a word off their list if someone else has it listed, too. This encourages players to go for longer, more complicated words instead of a bunch of short words.
