DIY memory game for children

A craft idea for long afternoons at home

“Memory”, or “Pairs”, is a very popular children’s game, one that you probably enjoy playing yourself. A personalised game of “Memory” is something quite special, however, so here we show you how to make your own! This is a perfect craft activity for those long afternoons when there is plenty of time for cutting, sticking and drawing and – best of all – having fun. It’s really important to make two of each drawing so you end up with matching pairs. We hope you have lots of fun playing with your home-made memory game!
