Word games can be used to keep your child occupied while they learn and play. These games not only enhance creativity but also help them learn new words. 

A child’s vocabulary expands at a surprising rate. Research also shows that, in early word learning, infants build their vocabulary slowly. By the age of 18 months, infants can typically produce about 50 words and begin to make word combinations. That’s an amazing jump! Luckily for teachers & parents, educational technology is making it easier to build vocabulary. Any topic can be learned through games and there are a lot of mediums available in the market, both electronic and physical, to help your kid improve their vocabulary.

Having said that, there is no particular age to start. In fact, the earlier the better as one learns more with the passing time. We have compiled a list of five word building games to help your kid continue to strengthen their vocabulary.

Plugo Letters

Plugo Letters is an AR-powered word building kit from PlayShifu (an early-learning tech toys brand). The kit comes with 48 physical letter tiles, a trunk, a gamepad, and works with the Plugo app. The app has six games with delightful stories and characters that help children improve vocabulary and learn English grammar—adjectives, nouns, verbs, prepositions, and more.

How to play? It is genius! All you have to do is place the letter tiles on the trunk to spell a word. These, in turn, are mirrored on the screen and the story progresses. Inspiring, isn’t it?
