Easy Wooden Memory Game




I was actually inspired by a blog post I recently ran across to create this little set for V, and although I thought I bookmarked it, I can't find it now. (A search for wooden memory game turned up tons of matches, but not the correct one.)

Anyway, this is one of those so-easy-but-I never-would-have-thought-of-it projects. I basically just stamped sets of two matching images onto these little wooden tiles. That's it. It's to be played like a traditional memory game.


I stuck with a yummy baked goods theme, since V has unfortunately inherited my sweet tooth. I still need to sew up a little bag for it.


Cute, huh? This would make a quick and cost effective party favor or assembly line Christmas gift.

  7. I love this idea. Memory game cards get destroyed in my house from being bent or stepped on. These would definatly stand up to a destructive toddler. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Did you use a 5 gallon paint stick? The pieces look about that size. I did a project with paint sticks where I had to cut off the ends with the handle and didn't know what to do with them. This will work I think.

  9. I actually didn't use a paint stick, although that sounds like a workable idea. I picked up the little wooden tiles from the craft department of Tuesday Morning, I think...
