3. Explain to your child that you are going to turn over a card and you both have to hunt for a word that rhymes with your chosen picture. 

4. The first person to spot a rhyming, shouts out the name using the target sound. The player then keeps the card.

6. The game ends when all the cards have been used. The winner is the person with the most cards.
