Make Your Own Memory Game

Inspired by this Don't Forget Memory Game tutorial by Chez Beeper Bebe - I decided to scrounge up some of my fabric scraps and make a set for my daughter.  We have spent a lot of time playing with these in many different ways.

I think from Meg from Sew Liberated summed it up best when she described the game of memory, "as a tool for increasing concentration and spacial awareness in addition to vocabulary-building activities".

She also posted some great tips on introducing the game of memory to a child, and variations on the game itself here.
