Number Plate Words


You will need pencil and paper for this game. It is an easy one to adapt to different age ranges - just be careful to choose words that don't contain letters that are not on your country's number plates. UK number plates do not often include the letters I, Q or Z, for example.

Age: 5+

Give each player a word to write down.

You can choose to give everyone the same length word or make it easier for younger children by giving them shorter words.

When a player spots a letter from their word on a passing number plate they can cross it off.

The first person to complete their word wins.


  • Have the rule that only one letter from a number plate can be used. This will need players to think about which letters come up more often.
  • Have a rule that letters must be ticked off in order.
