Memory Game in 3 Easy Steps

Memory Game in 3 Easy Steps

Why Play Memory Games?

Memory games improve short term memory and increase speed recognition skills. They also improve concentration, increase attention, and enhance cognitive skills. 

By Kindergarten, children will be asked to describe familiar people, places, things, and events and, with prompting and support, provide additional detail. This is an excellent way to practice attention to detail!

Want to Increase Difficulty? 

If you are anything like me, you take the same picture, 5 times to get the perfect photo. Use some of these look alike photos to pay close attention to detail. Look here, are they the same?

Tips on How To Play

Begin by allowing your preschooler to look at all photos face up before flipping them over. Once they get the hang of the game, then you can begin by turing them over from the start.
