Play Word Games While You Walk

31 Oct

Wednesday’s Words Game

Both mental and physical exercise are so good for functioning on all levels.   Today’s Wednesday’s Words use photos from  my pre-work walk to get the blood and creative juices flowing.

This exercise will get you thinking quickly and challenge you to be creative.  Get out a piece of paper and a pencil and find a stop watch (most of the fancy new cell phone have a stop watch app) or  locate a clock with a way to record seconds.    Give yourself 30 seconds to complete each of the following tasks.

In this photo, find and write down as many 3 letter words as you can in 30 seconds.

I got 12!

Find 3 Letter Words

In this photo, find and write down as many nouns as you can in 30 seconds.   The words must be more than 3 letters and proper nouns DO count!   Only use letters that you can actually see!

I got 8!

Find the Nouns

In this photo find and write down as many words that start with consonants as you can in 30 seconds.

YIKES, I only got 7!   Go…!

How did you do???

Today’s brain challenge comes from our game One of These Things is Not Like the Others.  This game is actually pretty challenging and we encourage you to head to our website and play it there.  In the meantime, here are a couple sample puzzles for you to try.  In each set of photos, there is one photo that is not like the others.  How quickly can you spot the different photo?
