You’ll Need

* Empty Cereal Box
* Construction Paper
* Glue
* Markers or Crayons
* Ruler
* Scissors

Directions:

Cut the cereal box so that it is just a plain flat surface that is the same size as the piece of construction paper.

Glue the paper onto the box and let it dry.

After it has dried, use the ruler to make an even amount of equally sized boxes.

Draw sets of pictures in each box. For example: make two boxes with a star on them, and another two with a heart, etc.

Cut out each individual box and the kids have made their own game of memory.

To play, mix the pieces up and turn them over then the child can try to find the matches.
