GIVEAWAY: RandomLine Games Encourage Creativity And Imagination

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

Big Sister E is a big fan of games. She'll point to one on the shelf and excitedly ask to play... only to lose interest after a little while (she is only 3 after all, so most of the ones that she wants to play are too difficult or confusing for her) and that game is then relegated to the bottom of a pile to wait for another chance down the road. The mark of a "good" game then? When she asks to play it over and over and is just as eager to get the top off as the first time we opened the box.

The lucky game that has that distinction right now is none other than Alphabet SQUIGGLE by RandomLine. "Let's play the LETTER GAME!" Big Sister E will enthusiastically exclaim and, considering it is both fun and educational, how can I say no?


The premise of Alphabet SQUIGGLE is fairly simple, which is a big plus when explaining directions to a 3-year-old. After rolling the die and moving your piece (a little extra counting practice), find the letter that you landed on along the outer edge of the board and write or trace it on a small piece of paper. Big Sister E loves to scour the alphabet looking for her particular letter and jumping to put her paper on it to do the tracing. "There it is! THERE'S MY K!"

There are more options, ones that are a little too advanced for us right now, that include turning the letter into a picture, writing a word or creating a drawing that begins with that letter. What a great way to integrate letter recognition and handwriting with vocabulary, all the while building confidence and self-esteem. And all kids think is that they're having a good time! No wonder RandomLine has won so many awards for their unique games and activity pads.

Being that Big Sister E is just a little too young, in the way that we play we work together to come up with a word that begins with that letter and reinforce the connection between the letter and the sound that it makes. The fact that Alphabet SQUIGGLE is so easily adaptable for a variety of ages and abilities is, in my opinion, one of its best qualities.

Recommended for ages 4 - 7, this game encourages creativity and imagination while still being so simple and engaging. Whether still learning how to write their letters or a seasoned pro, the children who play Alphabet SQUIGGLE are all able to participate and have fun. All the while practicing counting, numbers and letters, Big Sister E is happily scribbling on her piece of paper and anxiously awaiting her next turn.

RandomLine has a large selection of games, educational pads and drawing pads for ages 4 - 108 and all of them follow their motto of "No noise. No batteries. Simply imagination." Whether you are looking for a game to play at home or in the car, RandomLine will inspire originality and inventiveness with any of their products. Even better, every time you play will be a different experience!

Thanks to the generosity of RandomLine, one person will get to appreciate the value of these fun and unique products, because...
