Wordstir Instructions

Give clues to get your family to guess the word on each card. Crossed-out words are off limits! Don’t miss out on the fun: Subscribe to our monthly kits to receive new playing cards each month.

Time: 5 min+   Players: 2+

Rounds: 1 min per card. The game ends when each person has taken the same number of turns and there isn’t an equal number of cards per player left. When the correct word is guessed, the other person or team starts their turn. If no one guesses the word, or an unsayable word is used, the card is either lost or goes back into play, depending on the number of players.

Scoring: If someone guesses your word, you earn a point. The person or team with the most words guessed correctly by others wins!

Turns:

2 people: One person draws a card and tries to get the other to guess the word. Losing a card will be on the honor system. Roles are then swapped.

3 people: One person draws a card and tries to get the player on their right to guess. The next person will give the clues to the player on their right, and so on. The person sitting out each round keeps the time and buzzes if a forbidden word is used.   

4+ people: Divide into teams. One player from Team A selects a card and tries to get their teammates to guess the word. Team B will keep the time and must buzz Team A’s clue-giver if a banned word is used. Team B draws the next card and the roles are swapped. If there is an odd number of players, someone on the smaller team will be the clue-giver twice.

How to Grate Fresh Ginger

A Chef’s Secret: How to Grate Fresh Ginger

Introduce your young chefs to ginger, a zesty ingredient that will give a boost of flavor to any dish. This all-star ingredient featured in our Bento Box kit pairs perfectly with Asian dishes, like our Oodles of Noodles and Baked Salmon. Here’s a pro tip: you can also add it to any entrees, smoothies and drinks, or desserts for an added kick! 

Ginger might appear intimidating, but it’s simple to prepare. A grown-up can help peel with a veggie peeler, then simply rub the ginger against the shell of our Turtle Grater, or a standard grater. Depending on the recipe, you may also dice up the ginger root with a paring knife.

This plant is chock-full of benefits, it’s practically medicine. It can help reduce nausea, soothe tummy troubles, and boost immunity. Who knew something so tasty could be good for you! 

If you’re looking for other ways to lend some Asian flair to your dishes, consider these delicious add-ins: bok choy, tofu, mirin, miso, sesame oil, bean sprouts, or nori (seaweed). Don’t forget to subscribe to our monthly kits for more tips on how to cook up culture right in your kitchen!
