OT Approved Toy | Morphology

You guys, I'm not going to lie. This game is hard! Morphology is a bit different from the other toys and games I have been sharing, in the sense that it doesn't have a direct motor component (although it does require fine motor skills to manipulate the pieces). What I really love about this game is the creativity and flexible thinking required. In this team game, one person is chosen to be the "morphologist." That person must "morph" the game pieces into the word on the card, and the teammates have one minute to guess the word. There are both "easy" and "hard" words to choose from, as well as a clue. Can you guess what the pieces in the picture above are?

Best for ages: 10 and up

Side note: I once played this game with a group of freshman that I was running a Social Thinking group with, and they complained about playing a "Junior" version of a game. I told them that I am waaaay older than them, and I play the Junior version of the game myself. After one round, they all agreed that Junior was the way to go :) It appears that Morphology Games has since re-released this game, and it looks like the original Morphology Junior is now being sold simply as Morphology. Probably because this game is challenging enough as it is.

Skills addressed: 

  • fine motor
  • turn taking
  • cooperative play
  • executive functions (initiating, planning, sequencing, recall)
