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!

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!
