Match rhyming pairs to make silly sentences, then feed them to the slime monster in this fun rhyming game. Players start with a selection of five green slime cards.

Once they have a rhyming sentence they spin the spinner to find out in what style they must say their silly sentence in: whilst either holding their nose, with their teeth together, or in a squeaky voice!Once they've said their funny sentence, they post their cards into the 3D slime monster. The winner is the first player to post all their green cards into the slime monsters mouth.A fun, yet educational game, perfect for at home or in the classroom.Not suitable for children under 3 years due to small parts.
