Thanksgiving Memory Game

Here's a fun activity to make with your kids this coming week in preparation for Thanksgiving. I did this one with my two year old for our activity time and she loved it. Here's what you need:

2 sheets white card stock
self adhesive laminating sheets

 With a marker, divide one of the sheets of construction paper into ten squares. Ask your little one to draw pictures of what they're most grateful for, providing help where needed. My two-year old can draw circles and not much more, so I had her draw the "heads" for mom, dad, Hazel and Jesus. Luckily she was grateful for a few other circular things such as cookies, icecream, and movies (dvds) so that worked out well.
We did our best with the house and TV.
I made a copy of her pictures on the second sheet of card stock and used the self-adhesive laminating sheets to laminate both sheets. Then I cut out the individual squares and we were ready to play!

The game of "memory" has always been a favorite of hers, but it was extra special to have her own pictures on the cards.
Happy week of Thanksgiving!
