How to make the Word Scramble Games Reusable:

If you throw an annual holiday party, you may want to save paper and reuse the word scramble game year after year.

Something I would highly recommend are these super cool dry erase pockets. All you have to do is print out the games and then place them into the pockets. Simply use a dry erase marker to write down the unscrambled words and then wipe everything off when done!

Tip: If you’re planning on reusing the games I would suggest printing onto white cardstock to ensure that the paper is sturdy enough to withstand being written on multiple times!

How to play word scramble in a group setting:

While working on a word scramble game by yourself can absolutely be both fun and relaxing, they are also great activities to play at holiday parties with friends or family.

  • Use a timer:
    Set a timer for a designated amount of time. Have everyone start with their word scramble page face down on the table. When the timer begins, everyone can flip their pages over and begin unscrambling. Whoever has the most words figured out by the time the timer goes off, wins!
  • Unscramble as fast as possible:
    Once again, have each person start with their game page face down on the table. When someone says “GO,” each player will flip their pages over and start unscrambling words. Whoever can unscramble all twelve words the fastest, wins!

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
