Drumond Park Wordsearch Junior Review and Competition

I always enjoy introducing my children to games to help develop their reading ability and Drumond Park's Wordsearch Junior for children 4+ is perfect for that.  


There are three boards that vary in degrees of difficulty.  Once you have found the word or pattern formation you claim it as yours with the coloured markers.


When I saw the board I was a little worried it would be complicated to set up, but in reality once you know what you are doing its very simple to play.  You just slot a game disc into the board and place the plastic covering over it and away you go.  The markers conveniently sit into the containers on the side too!

There are a total of 9 double sided boards, which equal 18 different games, so there is plenty to do with this game.  The only thing you need to watch out for is the children hovering the markers over the board saying “found it” loudly… then we realised they are desperately still looking and just trying to play for time!!!  Eldest especially was very crafty about this!  But it did go to show how hooked he was with the game and keen to be the winner each and every time.

When someone already has markers on a word or pattern but the next one overlaps with that one you have to give back the original markers to the player and replace them with your own.  The winner is the first person who has used up all their markers or when the game has ended the person with the most markers on the board.

Eldest won the red board, which had pictures to help you.  



But youngest was quite good with the pattern board; it’s a good game for the age rating.  It was a clever way for him to search for patterns and learn to recognise them.  I think for RRP £18.99 it is one educational game that will go down well this Christmas, then over the holidays you can give your children some extra learning whilst they are away from school.

Stockist information is available on the website but if you would like to win your own copy then please fill out the rafflecopter below by the 19th of December.

    Any game that helps children with spelling and word formation has to be good, I'm sure you can have fun and help children with vocabulary building at the same time.
