Anyone who spends time with kids knows their patience is truly a virtue.
Whether it’s standing in line at the grocery store or waiting for food at a restaurant, kids complain about being bored within milliseconds.
Mine are no exception. Rather than reflexively pulling out my phone to keep them entertained, though, we often play an old-fashioned game of “hangman.”
In case you don’t remember, the game goes like this:
One player chooses a word and the other players try to guess it by asking which letters it contains. Every wrong guess brings the guessing players a step closer to losing and adds a body part to the “hangman.” The game is easily won by coming up with words that can’t be guessed easily.
My kids are masters at this, and they helped me to come up with idea and words for this post. Here are 49 words that can increase your vocab prowess and make you a “hangman” champion.
Any other words to add to the list, PR Daily readers?
