Summer Fun With Words

School’s out, the heat is on and hopefully you have a few minutes to relax.

Local puzzler Midori Im contributed the Spelling Bee challenge below.

Grab a pencil and papers and see how many words you can find. When you’re done, scroll down to the bottom of the page for the answer key.

Are you a genius? If so, congrats. If not, keep trying!

Instructions:

How many common words of 5 or more letters can you spell using the letters in the hive? Every answer must use the center letter at least once. Letters may be reused in a word. At least one word will use all 7 letters.
Proper names and hyphenated words are not allowed.

Puzzle

Score 1 point for each answer, and 3 points for each word that contains all 7 letters.

Rating: 18= Good, 25 = Excellent, 33 = Genius
