Memory is such a classic! I remember loving it as a kid and even now I still love playing. It’s the perfect blend of fun and education, helping tykes identify colors, patterns, fruits, animals, letters – you name it! I love the idea of handmade games that can be whipped up with things you probably already have at home without a big investment in purchasing plastic versions from big box stores. There’s just something so delightfully old fashioned about handcrafted games, don’t you think? Perfect for gift giving, road trips or rainy afternoons, here are 8 awesome DIY memory games!
