Brainbox Games My First Sound Snap is a unique deck of cards that lets you play two family favourites, Snap and Pairs using early-years reading strategies. It is suitable for aged 4+ and comes in 52 full colour playing cards plus 3 rules cards. BrainBox kindly give us pack one and pack two to do this review. Pack one uses letters A – M and pack two uses letters N – Z. It feels like the cards are coated which should make them more durable and water resistant. This is obviously really useful with children!
Ms C just turned 4 years old a few weeks ago and she is not very good at her alphabet. Through this game, I was able to teach her the small and big letters. This game is also great for Mr K, who is 5 years old, to teach me how to pronounce phonics while playing. This is a fun and educational game. Besides using it to play snap or pairs, we also used it to play mix and match or for young children it can be use as picture cards.
I love the flexibility of the ways you can play with these and the fact they are so convenient and portable. They can be played on a car/train/aeroplane journey (provided there is a lap table).
