Do you remember playing matching card
games as a kid? I decided to make a vintage version, to play with my two. All you have to do is print 2 pages with the images below, cut them out, and find a kid of your own who'll play this game with you!
If you're unfamiliar with this card game,
here are some simple playing guidelines:
Place the cards in 3 or 4 rows, face up.
Look at them and try to memorize where they are. Flip the cards over, then take turns trying to match them. The player with the most pairs wins.
My 7 year old daughter played this with me a few days ago. Before we started, I asked her to tell me about the pictures. She recognized a few things, but thought most looked funny. We talked about how people lived differently long ago... and thought about some of the modern conveniences we take for-granted. Came upstairs tonight to find her teaching my 5 year old son how to play. They were entertained while I made supper!
All of the vintage illustrations used in this project came from The Graphics Fairy... Thank you!
