Overview

Bumper Cards ™ Card Game is a fun, creative, and easy-to-play card-game designed for children aged 3 to 8, based on more than 20 years of research on literacy development. Players “bump” together different cards to create new words. For example, the words “flower” and “hook” bump together to form a new word “flowerhook.” Children can then use their imaginations to picture what a flowerhook is and what it might look like. Simply speaking, this fun and engaging game advocates creativity through language.

Why Bumper Cards ™ Card Game?

This game stimulates both convergent and divergent thinking, meaning that children will be better able to come up with diverse and creative solutions towards a problem. Moreover, this card game encourages language flexibility by showing that different words can be bumped together to form new words. This card game strengthens children’s vocabulary learning, as well as their word reading skill and oral language and reading comprehension. It also allows imagination through the expression of words and drawings, thus encouraging new ideas. Even though everyone sees the same words, each player might come up with a very different picture and understanding of the same words. By exchanging ideas with friends and family during the game, the game facilitates social interactions and advances bilingual interactions, as the cards are printed in traditional and simplified Chinese, and English.

How to Play

Select 8 cards

Combine simple words into compound words to form real “correct words” and/or new “creative words” with different games.

The words, “flower” and “hook,” bump together to form a new word “flowerhook.” Children then use their imaginations to picture what a flowerhook is (e.g., how it is used) and what it looks like. Children are encouraged to come up with both real and creative words.

Explain the meaning of the new words in a creative way.

Thinking about new meanings stimulates both convergent and divergent thinking, meaning that children will be more able to come up with diverse and creative solutions towards a problem.
