Family and Friends Memory Game

I finished this game last night, and I am really pleased with how quickly it came together. I hope O is going to love it! To make the game, I printed pictures as thumbnails, placed a wooden disk on top of the picture, and cut around it. I then glued the picture to the disk with mod podge. The next day I coated them with another layer of mod podge. Fast and easy! I ran out of wooden disks long before I ran out of pictures, so this will be a work in progress :)

These disks are pretty small, so you wouldn't want to make this game for a child who still puts objects in his or her mouth. This picture of me is goofy, but it's one of the 1st pics O ever took and I think she did a pretty good job :)

I originally planned to make a drawstring bag to store the game in, but then I decided that this box would work nicely :) I like how the picture disks look all crowded in the box :)

  3. That's really great! I'm making a similar thing at the moment for my girls and their playmates. It's a version of bingo with pictures of all of their faces instead of numbers.

  5. What a great game idea! Do you know what an alphabet box is? There's a drawer for each letter of the alphabet, and inside each drawer are objects that start with the sound that letter makes. We always put pictures of teachers and children in the drawers, too. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that you could possibly use your memory game for beginning sound games, too.

    Kitten Muffin- I love the idea of a bingo game! I hope you'll post pictures on your blog :)
