Name twister is a take on the traditional game of twister and is a fun way for your child to the learn letters in their name. For this game I used the letters of Neevah's name but you could use any combination of letters that are meaningful to your child or extend the idea to numbers, colours or shapes.
Write each letters of your childs name on a colourful piece of paper, spread them out on the floor and you are ready to play ......
Can you put your bottom on the N
Can you put your feet on the E
Can you put knees on the other E
Can you put your nose on the V
Can you put your elbows on the A
Can you put your hands on the H
We played this game over and over each time changing the order I announced the letters in and the body parts used ... it was lots of fun and as she got better at it I got faster and faster with the instructions
