Draw Pictures to Represent Compound Words

Make a game out of drawing pictures of words that, when put together, make a compound word. For example, draw an arm and a chair to make the compound word armchair, or draw a lady and a bug to make ladybug. Once your child understands the directions, take turns being the one who draws the pictures and the one who guesses the answer.
