Fun twists

  • Have one or two words related to older children – not exactly babies, to catch people off guard and leave them thinking for longer.
  • “Repeat” a word with its plural form, definitely will make people think for longer before writing down.
  • If you already decided on the name of your baby, add it as one of the scrambled words.
