I loved playing Memory (or Concentration) when I was growing up. If you are unfamiliar with the game, all of the cards are face down on a table and you take turns turning over a two at a time to get a match. It’s a great game for improving (you guessed it) memory. We have a few different versions, but I thought it would be fun to make our number game to work on math skills.
- Use notecards or cut cardstock to make twenty cards.
- Have your child write the numbers 1-10 on ten cards.
- Have your child put stickers on the other ten cards. One sticker on the first card, two on the next, and so on.
- Play Memory by matching up numerals with the correct number of stickers.
