My suggestion is to print out the pieces on card stock. If you don’t have any handy and don’t feel like running out to get it, try this instead. To keep the cards from ripping, cover them on both sides with clear packing tape. This will make the game pieces last longer.

There are actually lots of benefits to playing memory games… and not just when it comes to children. People of all ages can improve memory skills and vocabulary in a non-stressful manner. These games also help to increase one’s attention to detail and improve concentration.

The most common way to play this type of game is to place all the cards face-down on a table or other flat surface. Instruct you child to pick a card, look at it and lay it back down. Ask them to repeat the process until they find all the matches.

If you have younger kids, you may want to try this instead. Separate the cards and two identical sets. Place one face up-on the table. Show your child one card at a time and ask him (or her) to give you the matching card from the table.
