Number Matching Cards

This activity created with Pom Tree Kids products is part of a sponsored post for Blueprint Social and their client.  As always, all opinions are 100% mine!

I’ve noticed lately when I play games on the iPad with my two year old that the ones he’s most drawn to involve matching and or memory games.  In an effort to help him use that same creativity without the iPad around, I was excited to put together a set of memory and matching cards using a fantastic crafting line for kids by Pom Tree Kids.

A few weeks back I received all this in the mail and was told to get crafting with my kiddo.

Seriously.  There is no shortage of rainy day activities at our house.  Next time it even begins to sprinkle, come over.  I’m sure we’ll be breaking out one of these awesome kits.  The best part about them is that every single kit requires absolutely NO GLUE!  Let me repeat that for you.

NO GLUE!

That made this mama of a two year old quite happy.  Finally, something I felt that we could work on together and that he’d be able to do himself {for the most part}.

To make my memory game, I used some foam stickers and created two sets of cards numbered 1–10.

Materials:

3 sheets of solid 12 x 12 cardstock 

3 sheets of 12 x 12 scrapbook paper {for backs}

corner rounding punch

glue stick

number stickers 1-10 {two sets}

foam stickers from Pom Tree Kids

The cards were easy to make.  I simply grabbed a couple sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock and cut them in quarters, then cut those quarters in halves.  So from each sheet, I got 8 cards.  I used a corner rounding punch because I think it made the cards look a little more finished and not so handmade.  I used the same process for the printed scrapbook paper for the backs of the cards, but once I had all 8 pieces cut, I trimmed them about 1/4 inch on a long side and a short side so they’d be slightly smaller than the flashcard itself.

I used a glue stick to stick the printed scrapbook paper on the back side of each card.

Once each card was prepped, they were ready for a number sticker and the correct corresponding number of foam stickers.

My little guy helped me with this process by choosing which stickers he wanted on each card.  After I’d peel the backing, he liked to put them on the cards.

Soon we had an entire set, ready to play a game of memory by placing them all face down or a matching game with them all facing up.  He likes to do both!

And we’ve got plenty of foam stickers left over for more fun {and easy} crafts!

Happy learning!
