IN OTHERED WORDS IYLR

Under 6s6+12+15+18+

This is a game for many ages, both visual and verbal: fun, stimulating, quirky, colourful. Knowledge of English is a definite asset as is a sense of playfulness and linguistic enterprise!

I have re-arranged the letters of a word or two in familiar phrases and it’s up to you to recognise which word has been ‘OTHERED’ and to work out the original spelling and meaning eg MADE>EDAM; EAR>ERA; so that HAPPY BIRTHDAY would be HAPPY DIRTHBAY (where BIRTHDAY=DIRTHBAY). Some letters can be re-arranged to make another word (and another meaning) some are just nonsense.

The game is to spot the ‘OTHERED’ word/s and to decipher - perhaps print out the original hand drawn phrase for colouring in for those who like to create patterns, and then – best of all - make your own OTHERED WORDS!! in your own lettering!!

Experiment with pronunciation and letter shapes and sizes, maybe try cutting out letters from old/free magazines, perhaps cut up a bit of spare fabric (old clothes?) so you can paint/draw or stitch your own OTHERED WORDS creation onto a t-shirt or a bag.

Get ready, steady…!!! OG MAN OG !!! >>>>> !!! GO MAN GO !!!
