Play Scrabble On The Fridge

Do you love to play Scrabble but find it hard to play board games these days with everyone going in different directions? With school back in session, kids going to practice and recitals, and parents pulled between work, dinner and who's going to what game, it can be hard to make the time.

Instead, here's a fun way to have an ongoing game of scrabble that everyone in the family can play no matter when they are home!

First, pick a theme. As you can see from the words in my game, our theme for this round is "back to school". Only words related to school can be used. It keeps things challenging and fun, and for younger kids, helps work on their spelling!

To play:

  1. Pick a theme (back to school, fall, thanksgiving, sports, etc)
  2. First player creates a word (record name and word on a piece of paper and hang in on the fridge, along with the points)
  3. Each person adds a word and records their name and points
  4. When no other words can be made from remaining letters, add up points and let the winner choose the next theme!

This is a fun way to play a game with your family, even when your hectic schedules don't allow for it. So go ahead, beat the system, and smile about it!

To make your own game, you will need:

Turn all the scrabble tiles over and add a pea sized drop of glue to the center of each one.

Place a magnet into the glue and press until the magnet touches the tile. Glue will ooze out the sides, and that's okay! Let the glue dry completely.

See, wasn't that easy? Now all you have to do is put your scrabble tiles on the refrigerator and play!

Hope you have as much fun with yours as we do with ours!

After being in relationship with George for five years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called DR Mako and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 6pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him :+2347054263874.
