How to Play
- Each child selects one bolt and draws a card.
- Depending on what that card says (either ‘rhyme,’ ‘opposite,’ or ‘shape’), he/she must look at the word/shape on the bolt and find the nut with the appropriate word on it and then screw it on. For example, if a child picks the bolt with the word “head” on it and draws the “opposite” card, they must find the nut with the word “feet” on it. (The cards are color-coded to make this easier.)
- If the nut a child needs has already been used, he/she returns the bolt to the pile and play continues with the opponent taking a turn.
- The game ends when either all the bolts have been matched with nuts or no more can be matched.
