Alma’s Shopping List
Alma is a great shopper, but a really bad speller. She’s going grocery shopping today, but she has misspelled every item on her list by one letter. In this game, players must help fix Alma’s list by changing one letter of each word (without changing the order of the letters). For example, if the word on Alma’s List is nice, it should be changed to rice.

Endings & Beginnings

Credit ____________ trick
The one word(s) that completes both “credit” and “trick” is card—making credit card and card trick.
Rebuses have been around for hundreds of years. They are visual games that use pictures to represent words or parts of words in a phrase or sentence. In this case, the pictures represent parts of the names of famous people (both real and fictional).
