How to play:
Word making
For solo or group play. Shuffle all the cards and lay out 10 cards face up. See how many words you can make from the letters you see; for younger children, adult assistance will be required. The game can also be played competitvely by a group of players using a clock, watch or egg timer. See who can make the most words in 2 minutes. Each letter card can only be used once in each new word.

Letter sounds and early words
Hold the letter card up and make the sound of the letter e.g. 'a' (as in a-p-p-l-e) - ask your child to repeat it.Point to the picture and ask your child to tell you what it is. If your child gives you the correct answer make the connection by saying 'a' is for 'a-p-p-l-e'. If a word or sound seems too difficult repeat the sound and tell your child what the picture is. Put the card aside and go back to it later.

Pack includes 52 cards. Battery requirements: Not Required

Not only do these cards encourage your child to recognise pairs (i.e. snap), it encourages them to identify the letters and learn which words start with which letters, it also aids in learning colours and improves memory (if you turn the cards over). You make it as fun as you like but your little one will still be learning. Fabulous.

Very poor, not really snap, more a matching game as only 2 of each letter, if you want snap then do not buy this.

We not only use these for playing snap, but also as flashcards for learning letters!

Overall this is fine but with only 2 of each card this snap game can often run through with no snaps and therefore can be boring. However they also work for playing 'pairs' and our daughter new all her letter names and sounds by her third birthday by choosing to play it all the time!
