With the Royal baby due any second, Anita from Frau Scheiner schneidert, will explain how to make a fun touch-memory game for kids. This is a great project to do with your kids while they are on summer vacation. Have fun!

Materials and Tools

  • Material pieces with very different weaves and textures, 7 x 14 cm
  • Paper, card, cardboard, 7cm x 14 cm
  • Cardboard (e.g. from a packaging box), 49 x 42 cm
  • Wrapping paper, 49 x 42 cm
  • Wood glue, craft glue
  • Set square and ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors and a craft knife

 

Instructions

1. Draw a grid of 7 cm x 7 cm squares on the biggest piece of cardboard. Flip the cardboard over and cover the back with craft glue so you can stick the wrapping paper to it.

2. Lay the wrapping paper on the piece of cardboard making sure the edges line up, and press down firmly. This piece of cardboard will be used to make the individual cards – the wrapping paper gives the back of the cards a unified look. Flip over the cardboard again. Cut the cardboard so that there are 2 cards together on a piece. This should give you 21 rectangular pieces that are 14 cm x 7 cm. Now using the card and material, cut out 21 rectangular pieces, each measuring 7 cm x 14 cm. For the best effect, try to use material and cards that feel very different from each other. Remember that what the pieces feel like is more important than their colour or what they look like.

3. Glue the card and material pieces to the cardboard rectangles. Wood glue tends to work well when sticking the bits of material down. Now cut the rectangles in half to make pairs of cards.

That‘s it. Have fun playing!
