wood memory game: diy

A simple memory game I put together for our trip this week. It’s perfect for the sand but keep it away from the water. I tried it out and the girls loved it. Seeing all of the faces of the people they love and trying to find the match! I was going to make one with the alphabet I will have to do when I get home.

It’s easy peasy: Just paint the wood circles then attached photos to the other side.

There’s a fabric bag I stamped to keep it all together.
All the colors remind me of summer!

    hmmmm…. lemme guess where you are headed… does it start with "hippo" and end with "cookies"?

    I created a similar Tic Tac Toe game for a class I taught a few years ago. I used pics of the boys on half of the circles and girls on the other half, but you could also do half kids', half parents' pics. Love the storage bag you created!

    On the other end of the spectrum….I think this may be a great idea for my mother who is showing signs of dementia. She is getting people mixed up, but has always loved to play games. Your idea might prolong the memory gap! Thanks for the hope!

    This gave me an idea for a family ancestor version. Place the same photo of an ancestor on 2 discs or squares and on the other side put a a fact about that ancestor, but not the same one on each disc. For example : born in Denmark on one, and Worked in a coal mine on the other. Some of the information would have to be he same on several discs, such as the birth place so it could be played several times and not be too easy.
