A Cute Frog Pond board game to practice the alphabet, numbers and words.




Help the frogs across the pond to reach their friends with this Big A3 board game. Help your child practice their alphabet, numbers, words and more.

Board Games are an excellent way to learn.  Children learn valuable skills like hand-eye coordination to social skills, brain-strengthening strategy to math and language learning as well as turn taking and being a good sport, they gain knowledge of basic concepts as they practise good listening, following directions and responding appropriately. Children also get to work on their fine motor skills as they manipulate and move the game board pieces.  The best part about board games – They are downright fun!

This activity includes:
  • 1x A3 Game board
  • 1x Die

A good idea is to laminate the board game so you can use it over again. Print the game in A3 for better game play. Use the Frog game pieces to move across the board. With a white board marker, write the words, letters or numbers onto the lily pads. The Player rolls the die, and moves forward, which ever lily pad the player lands on, the player must then read what is written. Use a mix of words, numbers, and colours to make it interesting.

How to Play Space Adventure:


Place the word cards face down on the table in a pile. You may use as many or few as you like. At the start of the game, the first player draws a word card. If read correctly the player can then roll the die and move ahead that many spaces (planets). If the word is said incorrectly, the player must stay in their place. The first one to reach the finish wins. Tip: start off using the same word cards, until your child knows them well, then move on to some more words. Help your child say and pronounce the words properly.
