Do your kids like to play memory matching games? Mine sure do. Whether playing with vocabulary cards or articulation cards, memory is a classic game that goes a long way. I do like to spice things up a little, instead of just playing the regular old matching. Here are a few ways to change things up:
- Let the kids go fishing for the cards. Attach paper clips to each card and a magnet to a stick with a string.
- Pick up the cards with a magnet wand. Attach the paper clips, so they’ll stick.
- Hide the cards in a large sensory bin. Mine is filled with red beans and rice (Louisiana shout out!). 😉 The kids love digging around in the bin, especially the little ones.
- Spread different sets of cards out on the floor for each student. Let the kids race to see who can find all of their matches first.
- Everything is more fun with wild cards! Turn your instruction card into a wild card and change the rules up (i.e. whoever finds the wild card wins, loses a turn, puts a card back, etc.). I put a sticker over my instruction card to make it more fun.
