Under the Sea Toddler Flashcards

I've been organizing and rearranging our school supplies in order to get ready to start a new school year. I was working on DD#3's stuff and wanted to create a few more things for her workboxes. She has quite a few puzzles, but was lacking some easy games. I thought she'd enjoy a memory/flashcard game.

She had never played Memory before. She enjoyed flipping all the cards over and finding the matching pairs. She did not quite grasp the rule of only flipping over two cards at a time and if they didn't match, turning them back over again. She wanted to do it her way, so I let her. :) I was surprised at how long she played. I only did 6 cards so that she would not be overwhelmed. I'll switch them out with other sea creature cards when she needs a variety or more of a challenge.

Here's what the deck of cards ended up looking like:

While I can't give a link to these flashcards due to copyright issues, I can give you a link to a template so that you can make your own set of custom flashcards. I've even created a short tutorial on how to make these cards using Open Office. Click here for the tutorial.

Option 1: JPEG image --- click on template, right-click and save to your computer.

Option 2: Click on image an download as a PDF

Option 3: If you really want a PSD file, email me via the contact button on the sidebar.

Thanks for this template (and a source for more cute digital art/scrapbooking supplies!) I love these - i'll be using your template to make a Noah's Ark memory game to start out Year One with Tapestry of Grace this fall :)
