I’ve been making a conscious effort to shut off the TV and get my kids’ brains fired up. I loved playing games as a kid, and so when I was introduced to Morphology, I wanted to give it a go! There are two different Morphology games — the regular Morphology is for ages 13+, and Morphology Junior is for ages 8 and up.
I knew that I would have to modify the play a little bit since my kiddos are 5 and 3, but we had such a blast! Micah and I sat down to play one morning and I was so pleased with how creative his little mind was!
How to play
The basic gist is this: While moving frog pieces around a board, teams of players must guess the word on a card that their morphologist has chosen.
You can decide as a group if you’re going to do easy or hard, and if you’re going to read the hints or not. I love that the option to help younger kids is there!
You have 60 seconds for your team to guess the creation that the morphologist has made — but there’s a catch. If you draw “brush teeth”, you can’t use a game piece to brush YOUR teeth. You’ve got to use the manipulatives provided! You can also roll the dice to add different elements to each morph — check it out:
Eventually the teams will advance around the board as they guess the morphs correctly.
You can purchase Morphology ($24.99) or Morphology Junior ($29.99) online. Also, Morphology plays daily guessing games on Facebook and Twitter that are a ton of fun, so be sure to check them out!
