Memory Match Game

Who doesn't love a fun memory match game. I remember playing them all the time when I was little. I haven't bought any memory games for Jake yet so I thought I'd make him one after I was inspired by the one I saw on Dandee. This game was super easy to make and it's great for starting a conversation about colors and shapes. 

Here's what you need to make your own memory game:
-12 small 1.5" wooden discs. I bought mine at Michaels. 
-Colored felt (if you don't want to spend the time cutting shapes out of felt you could also use foam stickers). 
-Glue (I used a hot glue gun)
-Bag (optional, but a great way to take this game on-the-go)

As you can see I'm not wonderful at cutting out felt shapes, but the good thing is Jake doesn't care. If you add Heat N' Bond to the back of the felt it's much easier to cut, but I was too lazy to do that step, hence the crooked cutting. 

As you can see I almost always try to add a bag for all of our games when I can. We go out to eat a lot on the weekends and I just rotate the games in my bag each week. These games keep Jake happy and they allow me and my husband to have a more peaceful hands-free eating experience!

Hope you love this game as much as my lil man and I do.
