Are you worried about your child’s vocabulary not being good enough? Do you want to improve her vocabulary? Introducing your child to word games and activities can be a fun way of helping her improve her vocabulary.

But first, let’s understand how word games benefit the brain. Dr Gayatri Devi, MD, Neurology, New York Memory & Healthy Aging Services says, “Word games benefit the brain because they activate parts of the brain that deal with language and word finding, which forces the brain to exercise, work and be active.”

There are several word games that can improve our vocabulary. Scrabble is one name that comes instantly to mind when we think of such word games. It is a fun and classic word game. The objective of the game is to score the most points possible. Scrabble is an immensely popular and enjoyable game.

Another fun word game is Boggle from Hasbro, which was designed by Alan Turoff. It is played using a plastic grid of lettered dice in which players attempt to find words in sequences of adjacent letters. Other such word games include Taboo, 4 Pics 1 Word, Spelling Game, etc.
