Tongue twisters can be a great way to improve and help develop literary skills; just remember Colin Firth in The King’s Speech for proof of their effectiveness. Teachers have used tongue twisters for decades to help encourage kids to read and to help entertain them while actually teaching them some fundamental speech principles.
In this way, you can make sure that there are plenty of laughter-induced endorphins flying around circling the room as children laugh at each new tongue twister, keeping them happy while also learning. It gets even better now if you want to have fun with your children as you can check out the new Tongue Twister Snap games.
To play all you have to do is deal out the cards and play the normal game of snap, with one vatrition to the rules, you only snap when the letters are matching. The player that wins a snap has to read a tongue twister from every card before the timer is out.
One thing nice about the new snap games is the fact that you can play them at home or on the go making it a wonderful way to keep kids entertained while travelling or waiting. There are also two different themes to choose from so that you can keep your kids entertained, Animated Animal Antics and Sensational Sporting Superstars. Both cost about £5.99 and can be purchased at either a toy store or at www.amazon.co.uk or www.zoobookoo.com.
