Idiot Words and Fruit Loops!

Recently, my youngest invented a game that's probably been invented at kitchen tables across the country since breakfast cereal was born way back when... We had more fun playing (and eating) this game than we've had in years, and trust me, we've had plenty of fun! The goal was to make words with "oo" in them and use the cereal in place of the "oo" but we just kept eating them!! Eventually we had a list:

We did, however, encounter some problems along the way:

In our house we call them "idiot words" because they don't spell the way they sound. We say that some idiot who invented the English language couldn't spell very well so some of the words are spelled incorrectly...


  1. what a cool and very interesting game with the kids!

  2. Oh thank you, as the Cat in the Hat once said;
    "It's fun to have fun, but you have to know how!"

  3. “Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.” - also Dr. Seuss

  4. Thats cute, children at play can be truly heartwarming.

  5. Thanks! Yes, children can be such fun....
