Here’s a new game your kids might enjoy. Letterball tests your skill at re-arranging letters in the right order to spell a word. The words are the names of commonly-known animals (there are 32 different animals). Click on the balls to spell the word left-to-right. You can undo a guess by clicking on it again.
