Phonics: Muddy river game

Lay a large sheet or blanket on the floor to act as a river, add a shark, crocodile, or something to sit in the river for fun!

Lay out the phonics sound cards on one side of the river and stand that side with them. Shout out ‘farmer, farmer, may I cross your muddy river?’ The adult or sibling standing on the other side of the river being the farmer, calls out a sound. For example, ‘c’. Your job is to find the c sound and jump across the river without getting eaten! Your job is to deliver all the sound across the river to the farmer to win! Good luck!
