An interactive kid-friendly alternative to hangman.

Kid-friendly Hangman

The Disappearing Ice Cream Sundae interactive PowerPoint is perfect for kids! It functions the same as the game we all know but is targeted towards children (or anyone with a sweet tooth). Let’s face it, what could be worse than seeing a delicious treat slowly disappearing before your eyes? Am I right?聽馃崹

  • Ask students to guess one letter at a time by clicking on a letter tile.
    • If the letter is in the word it will automatically appear on one of the letter lines.
    • If the letter is not in the word they will have to click the Eraser button to make part of the ice cream sundae disappear.
  • If they guess the whole word with ice cream still in the bowl then they win!

The summery words that are included in the game are:

  • heat
  • pool
  • beach
  • summer
  • swimmers
  • sunshine
  • holidays
  • barbeque
  • ice cream
  • waterpark.

Editable Interactive Hangman!

Yes, that’s right! You can add your own words to the game! Simply choose the Editable version using the drop-down menu. This PowerPoint allows you to drag letter tiles onto the slide to spell your own words.

It’s perfect for:

  • practising weekly spelling words
  • learning new vocabulary
  • word of the day activities.

Hi Can this be used as a Google Slide?

Simone Whelan 路 Sep 12th, 2021


Hi, Simone, thanks for your question. The Disappearing Ice Cream Sundae can’t be used in Google Slides unfortunately. It uses animations and action buttons that Google Slides doesn’t support. Hope you have a fantastic day.
