Hi everyone! I'm kicking off two weeks of fun "kid friendly" projects over on the Doodlebug Designs blog today. The design team has been working on projects to do with your children or grandchildren so ... I created a fun memory card game with my scrapbook supplies!
Do you remember playing the game "Concentration" as a kid? It was one of my favorite card games so, I decided to make a memory card set and a cute 3x4 card box to hold the cards. The box is a .svg cutting file designed by Lori Whitlock (link below).
To make the cards, I cut white card stock into 26, 3" x 4" rectangles and then I added the 2.75"x3.75" aqua dot (puppy love) paper to the front of the cards so that they all matched. But you could use any colorful paper for this!
Now for the good part! I covered the back of the cards with different papers from the Puppy Love, Kitten Smitten, and Fun in the Sun collections and then added stickers and die cuts. I made two of each design so that there are 13 matching pairs. Not only is this fun to make but you could use ANY paper collection for this project! Have your little ones help you with all of the stickers and then teach them how to play!
Lay all of the cards out on a table, face down in rows to create a large rectangle.
The first player turns over 2 cards to see if they match. If the two cards match, the player keeps the pair and takes another turn.
If the cards do not match, the cards are turned back over in the same spot. Everyone should try to remember the pictures on the cards, and where they are located.
Now it's the next player's turn and he or she turns over two cards to see if they match.
Play continues like this until all pairs have been picked up. The winner is the person with the most matching pairs.
Have fun designing your own cards. With all of the wonderful Doodlebug stickers and die cuts ... the possibilities for this project are endless!!
