DIY Memory Game

By  | Last Updated:  

Hi, it’s Suzie from Project: Party Perfect sharing another craft I made for my son, Caiden. He’ll be turning 3 soon, so I thought it’s a perfect time to introduce him to one of my favorite games growing up…The Memory Game! To spark his interest, I made a Space-themed game using a rocketship stamp and space related cut-outs. But use what you have and play around with clip art images, shapes, color, etc!

DIY Memory Game for Kids


12 Wooden Circles (got these at JoAnn’s)

Sand Paper

Foam Brush

Mod Podge

Card Stock


Felt Star Cut-Outs

Alien Cut-outs

Stamps (Rocketship/Numbers)

Hot Glue


Cut 12 circles from your card stock by using a wooden circle as your template.

Apply Mod Podge onto your wooden circle and stick your paper circle on top and lightly press out any bubbles.

Sand the edges of  your wooden circles with sandpaper to remove any splinters as well as excess paper.

Appy Mod Podge over the paper and let dry…repeat to give about 3 coats.

Repeat with the rest of the circles.

Once all your wooden circles are covered with card stock on one side, apply your matching images on the other side. Total of 6 different images.

How to Play:

  • Shuffle your woooden circles and place them face-down on your surface.
  • Let your child go first to pick 2 circles to try to find a match.
  • If a match is found keep them and take another turn.
  • Once all the matches are made, the player with the most wins!
