I am so happy that I thought of this idea. As you already know, I have my 2 and 3 year old grandsons with me right now. They are a handful!! Though their lives are just beginning their start has been rough. So I am trying after 4 1/2 weeks to figure out ways to get them "caught up." The biggest problem at this point is lack of discipline, which makes for total chaos at my house. I have been so busy trying to get things a little settled and get things in my life totally rearranged that we are just now getting to a routine. (and of course we are leaving for the beach for a few days there goes the routine). So hoping that the understanding discipline will follow (soon I hope!!) The other really big problem is that the boys have not learned at all how to sit still and read or play games. Therefore they are behind in a lot of areas. So my answer was to make this memory game for Skyler. He loves Dora and Diego so thought I would start there. I only made 8 pairs so that he would be able to handle it. I am thrilled with how it came out! I packed both of the boys backpacks for the beach trip (4 hour car trip ugh) and this is in Skyler's.
I used cereal boxes for the base.
The white paper was surplus DH brought home from work
I found images on google and imported and sized in Word.
Paper from scrap box
Used MTC basic shapes for all the rest.
The most expensive part was the ink used.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog and thank you all for the kind thoughts and prayers for my family.
