My kids love playing Memory. So for each holiday or season, I try to make them a new set of Memory cards. This year I printed the pumpkins above on 5×7 paper, had the kids cut out and glue to black paper, and then I covered in contact paper. They have all really enjoyed playing. My biggest challenge is making the game easy enough for my 2 year old without boring my 5 year old to tears. The fun pumpkin faces have definitely helped with that! And while the game only takes a few minutes to play (depending on who goes first), it’s still a nice quiet-time activity that all of us enjoy.
And if you are curious, I get about 99% of my clipart from DJ Inkers. I have found that she makes the cutest clipart for kids – plus each jpg comes in color and black & white, making them perfect for me to print out coloring pages as well.
