    How to Make it:

    step1
    Get your pictures ready
    Find images of people, places and things that would interest your child. Choose images with the same alignment so your cards look consistent. Make two 4 x 6 copies of every image you selected.

    step2
    Create the card backs
    Look for a pretty patterned paper to use as a backing,
    or scan a sheet of gift wrap or fabric to create your own
    paper. Make sure you have enough paper to
    back 30 4 x 6 cards.

    step3
    Glue them together
    Use spray adhesive or a thin layer of glue to attach
    the photos to the patterned paper. Trim off any
    overlapping edges.

    Start playing
    Shuffle the cards and place them face down in rows. Players take turns turning two cards up to try to make pairs. If a pair is made, the player collects both matching cards and takes another turn. If the cards
    don’t match, they turn them back over and end their turn. The player with the most pairs wins!
