When I last posted about how I changed the look of our kitchen, I told…
Scrabble is my all time favorite game to play. In my childhood I learned how to play various board games including classics like Checkers, Chess, and Monopoly. Sometimes we played them over and over because— well, when it is winter in South Dakota and you don’t have a television, a computer, cell phones, or the internet, there isn’t much else to do!

As I grew older I realized that I don’t care for board games that are group games. I like more one on one type games (because I like one-on-one conversations, too– I am one of those mixed up extroverted introverts). And while Scrabble is not one-on-one, it is close enough for me!
Recently I was thrilled when my 8 year old son wanted to play Scrabble with me. It was my dream come true! Scrabble obviously involves a lot of spelling, so if you don’t enjoy spelling, you won’t enjoy Scrabble. While we played, I realized how much Math is involved, but we won’t tell my son about that!
When I see a giant Scrabble game like this one on Pinterest, it makes me smile.
I like seeing crafts made with Scrabble pieces, too. So when I see Scrabble games at yard sales or thrift stores, I started buying them for crafts. I even bought a French version! It has different number values for the letters. Eventually I felt like I had enough extra games to craft with them.
This is my idea for a Fridge Magnet Scrabble Game! This would also work if you just wanted a fun way to display a Scrabble game. Just wait until you see how I attached it to the fridge!
Have you ever crafted anything with Scrabble pieces?
