Homemade Family Memory Game

I do love a good game of memory/pairs with my charges. I used to just let them win, but now they kind of give me a run for my money. We have lots of store bought versions, but I thought that it would be nice make our own family memory set to use out and about.

Make sure you follow my homemade children’s toy board on Pinterest, and don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own family memory game you will need:

  • Wooden circles like these ones from amazon
  • Patterned paper
  • Circular hole punch (optional)
  • Photos – you will need doubles of these
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

I used a circular 2 ½ inch hole punch to make these and it really did make the job easier. If  you don’t have one it will take slightly longer.

First make circles the sizes of your wooden ones on the patterned paper and cut them out.

Glue these to the wooden circles. This will make the back of your memory cards.

Next print out the photos you are going to use. You will need to have doubles of each picture.

On the photos draw circles use your wooden circles and cut them out. Make sure that for each set you are drawing the circles in the same place. Again I used my hole punch for this.

Glue the pictures to the other side of the wooden pieces.

Try painting some PVA glue on to some scrap bit of photo.   The reason I say this is to make sure that the ink from the picture doesn’t run. If it doesn’t make it run, then paint a layer of PVA glue onto each front side of the memory pieces.

Once it has all dried you are all ready to play.

Having some fun after doing some spelling practice.

EC and YC LOVED their personalised pieces, they kept chatting about what was going on in each of the pictures. These are definitely being added to my busy bag collection.
