I am always on the lookout for inexpensive ways to bring learning into our home. And if I can make learning fun, all the better! That’s why, when I found these kitten calendars in the dollar bin at Michael’s, I knew just what to do with them: Make a memory game! Playing a game of memory is a fantastic and simple way to teach young children beginning principles in object permanence, vocabulary, and exercises their, well…memory.
I purchased two 5 3/4 x 5 1/4 calendars…Separated the pages of both and paired them up.
I cut 12 x 12 scrapbook paper into 6 x 5 1/2 inches to cover the backs. I mounted each page on to scrap paper (construction paper will do).
Then we played a kitten themed game of memory. The Muffin Tin Kids loved it! And really, who doesn’t love kittens?
