Playing with Tongue Twisters


Activity Overview

Play around with Tongue Twisters to add some silliness to your family time while teaching children how to enunciate words. Tongue twisters are a great way to mix things up at the dinner table, in the car or anytime that your family is together.

There are certain to be lots of laughs as family members take turns attempting to get through the tongue twisters successfully. It really can be quite a fun challenge for all ages to enjoy!

You don't need much to get started. Focus on one or two tongue twisters at a time. Have each person try to work the wording out for themselves. Never judge anyone for their accuracy or inaccuracy. Laughter will undoubtedly prevail because most everyone will mix up the words and sound just as silly as the person who went before them.
