Memory Game


Sharpen your preschooler's memory skills by creating your own memory game.

 
Materials

  • Index cards
  • Pen or marker

Directions

Sharpen your preschooler's memory skills by making your own memory game.

  1. Create two identical sets of index cards with letters of the alphabet, colors, shapes, or numbers. Start out with only a few, as this can be tough.
  2. Place all the cards, facedown, on the table.
  3. Have your child turn over one card, then put it back, facedown, on the table, and try to find the corresponding matching card.
  4. You can determine the number of tries allowed, and can make a game out of this between two or more children.
  5. At first your child may only guess, but it won't take long for her to get the idea.
  6. Begin the game with only a few cards, and add more as your child gets better; don't overwhelm her with too many cards at once.
