Ds is struggling with letters and learning key words at school. Any recommendations for any board games to help make it more fun

Could you get magnetic letters..lower case and make little words like cat fat etc..
Also get him to make letters in sand or flour .
Starfall online is good too.

The foam letters for playing in the bath are great.

DS loved the foam letters for the bath.

Orchard Toys do really good board games for small children, some of which relate to letters.

Was going to say have a look at Orchard Games too. Like this one. Dominoes is good too.

Agree with getting them to draw them in sad or flour or even painting them with water outside.

I just bought an orchard one - think it’s called match and spell - for the same reason.
