A fun way for kids to work on letter recognition, learning new words and spelling. Loaded with pictures, this entertaining game is an exciting, educational app!
The game offers a variety of puzzles, including nature, farm animals, numbers, colors, and more! Toddlers & Preschoolers will enjoy doing their very own crossword puzzles by matching letters and unlocking the corresponding pictures. Older kids can turn on "Word Adventure" in the settings so that only a few letters will be shown on the puzzles. From there they use the pictures as clues to build on spelling skills.
Additional settings allow color choices for tiles and the option to have puzzles display upper or lowercase letters. Sound options allow the vocalization of letters and picture words as an additional learning aid.
