Kora & Logan love playing family games. Kora’s always asking, “Mommy, do you think we could play a nice family game of cards (or insert other game here) tonight?” .

That’s why we are excited about a fun new game for kids. Scrabble Alphabet Scoop is a really cute game that is fast paced and helps children with reading and spelling.
Now that we’ve played it quite a bit, it’s one of my favorite games to play with the kids
The object of the game is to put all the letter tiles into the soup bowl. Then everyone grabs a scoop and selects a card.
The cards all have 5 words on them and before play starts everyone goes around the circle announcing which word they are going to try to find tiles for. This is great because the words vary in length and difficulty.
This enables kids who are just learning to read and spell to pick the top few words and parents can pick the longer words. We thought this was great because it really allowed our family to play together.
After everyone announces their word, one person grabs the lid of the soup bowl and says, “Ready, Set, Scoop!” Everyone dips their scoops in and tries to gather up letter tiles to spell the word they announced earlier. There are blank tiles which act as wild letters. There are also orange tiles with flies on them (“There’s a fly in my soup!” Get it?) and if you scoop up a fly you have to return all of your tiles to the soup bowl and start over.
Here’s a video of Kora & Logan playing a round:
We have had a great time this holiday break playing this game and I’m happy to say that not only do I love how fun it is, but that it is compact and all the pieces and cards fit right in the bowl for easy storage.
We recommend Scrabble Alphabet Scoop to anyone with children in their lives. It’s a fun and lively game, that is educational and is sure to provides lots of laughter and smiles along the way.
