Baseball Activities for Kids

Spelling Bee Baseball

Hit a home run with words. You can be a baseball All-Star even if you can't hit, pitch, or throw. Because in this version of the game, you round the bases just by spelling words correctly.

What You'll Need:

  • Dictionary
  • Baseball field (optional)
  • Chalk (optional)
  • Pebbles (optional)

In this game, it's your pitcher's job to toss out tough (but not impossible) words. It's the batter's job to take a swing at spelling the word right. And it's up to your umpire to check the spellings in the dictionary.

Just like in regular baseball, if you miss three times in a row, you're out. Three outs, and the other team is up.

Don't feel like running around the bases? Draw a baseball diamond on the sidewalk and use pebbles as players.
