There is a fly in my soup...

Nope it is just Gabe..  We were playing a new game today and having some fun.

The Game... Scrabble Alphabet Scoop.    This is a very cute game for kids ages 6 and up.  We wanted a game of Scrabble that would be a little better for Gabe to do.  This was right up his alley. 
When you open up the lid all of the items store right inside.  It is a nice feature, I just have to find a place to keep it now because I can not put another game on top it.
To start with you give out a card to each player.  Then you choose the one word that you want to spell.  After that some one takes the lid off the pot and says "ready, set, scoop"  and everyone starts scooping to get letters.
You keep scooping out letters until you spell a word.  If you scoop out one of these lovely bugs you have to put back all of your letters.  This happened to me three times in one round, Gabe thought that it was hillarious.  Once you have finished spelling your word you put the lid back on and say yummy and that ends the round for everyone.

I thought the game was really cute and alot of fun.  I thought that it would even be easily adaptable for some younger kids.  It is a fun way for kids just really learning how to spell to practice the skill.  I did ask Gabe what he would rate it 1 - 10, 10 being the best.  He gave it a 7.  When I asked him what he liked about it he said "It is fast and about food.  I like anything that is fast and about food.  Then I asked him what he did not like about it "I had to spell" LOL.  He did say he rather play the game then do a worksheet to learn how to spell though.
