Memory Game With the Memory

Girlygirl has loved games this last week. We have a few and some have worked great for her but one that she could get was Memory. I didn't but the game away and say wait until she is ready. I just changed the rules. We played Letter Match. (our game is Sesame Street and ABC game) I laid the pieces face up and found the two that matched. Girlygirl had lots of fun doing this. It was a great way to talk about letters too. This didn't work with Girlygirl yet but worked great with a little girl I use to nanny. We used half of the pieces. That way it there was less choices and the game went faster. Both big when you are trying to do anything with a two year old. Play the game normally.
Remember to play with your kids today because playing is learning. What ever you play make it work for you.

I like how you adapt it! My girl is 22 months, and interestingly enough, I just got the original Memory game for her. I lay out 12 cards face up, give her the matching cards, and let her match them up as we say what the pictures are.

I took of the comments because the have peoples email in them. I know I wouldn't want every one to see my email so that is why.

Thanks, it's appreciated! I wasn't sure how else to get in touch with you, and figured that it was worth the risk :-)
