Categories for Kids

The whole family will love playing this fun category game!

Here’s how it works: we’ll give you a fun category, start a 30 second timer, and then you name as many different things that you can think of that fits in that category before time runs out!

For instance, if we say “Name some things that you find in the kitchen?" -- then you would name things like "a sink, a refrigerator, a fork, a toaster, a dishwasher” etc. until the time expires.

Ask a friend to count the number of responses that you come up with for each category so that you can see how you scored at the end of 30 seconds (and then play again to see if you can beat that score!).

You can play this fun word game at a party, at school, in the car, on family game night, or simply to pass the time and keep your brain active and sharp.

Of course, we’ll be adding brand new Categories for Kids all the time, so be sure to check back every day for brand new categories and other updates!

One more thing -- if you enjoy playing this fun family game (as much as we did creating it!), please consider giving us a 5-star rating.

If you feel it deserves less than a 5-star rating, we'd love to hear your suggestions about how this game could be improved at Thanks you so much from all of us at the Word Nerds team!
