Unlock the door to learning with house vocabulary activities! Engaging games and exercises help kids explore English words for home and living.


Explore the nooks and crannies of a home with engaging English learning games and activities centered on house vocabulary! This comprehensive guide is tailored for young learners curious about the names of various rooms and household items, from the “kitchen” to the “bathroom,” and everything in between like “sofa,” “table,” and “lamp.” It’s designed for parents and educators looking for innovative ways to incorporate language learning with daily life exploration.

1. Room scavenger hunt

Organize a scavenger hunt where children search for items listed in English in different rooms. For example, find a “bookcase” in the living room or a “toilet” in the bathroom. It’s a playful way to connect vocabulary with physical spaces.

2. Furniture matching game

Create cards with pictures of furniture and household items on one side and their names in English on the other. Have kids match the picture with the correct word, reinforcing their memory and vocabulary.

3. Build your dream house

Using cardboard, paper, or digital drawing tools, invite children to design their dream house, labeling each room and furnishing it with “beds,” “chairs,” and more. This creative activity encourages the use of new vocabulary and architectural imagination.

4. Daily routine storytelling

Ask children to tell a story about their day, guiding them to mention different rooms they visit and items they use, like waking up in their “bedroom,” eating breakfast in the “kitchen,” or playing video games in the “living room.” This fosters vocabulary usage in context.

5. House vocabulary bingo

Play bingo with cards featuring images and names of rooms and household items. As you call out the vocabulary, children mark their cards. This classic game is great for reinforcing recognition and listening skills.

Dive into house vocabulary with these lively activities, opening doors to new words and concepts. It’s about making every corner of the house a lesson in English, transforming familiar spaces into arenas of learning and discovery.
