Print, cut and laminate one game board for each player and all playing cards prior to play. Cards are placed face down in a pile in the middle of all players. Players take turns drawing a card and attempting to identify the alphabet letter shown. Once a letter has been identified it can go into a separate discard pile. If a player draws a card with the ant picture they say “There are ants in my pants!” and place the card on one of their game board boxes. The player who fills all three boxes on their game board first is the winner.
