Matching game...

Photobucket

I came across this custom matching game idea here and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to get crafty.  Although Scarlett is still a little young to get the concept of remember where you saw it last, she loved turning the tiles over and declaring the name of the person on the other side.  I finished putting this together last night and we played with it first thing this morning.

I think I get a little more excited about my makeshift creations than she does.

Here's how I did it:

What you need:
An even number of same sized "tiles"...I used 12 wooden 3x2 rectangle plaques from Michaels
Glue
Mod Podge
Decorative paper
Pictures of family, friends, dogs, cats, etc.

Cut your decorative paper to the size of your tiles and glue.  When glue is dry, Mod Pogde over the top to seal the paper onto the tile

Now take your photos and shrink them to the size of your tiles.  I put my pictures into a word document and shrunk them down this way.

Glue pictures onto the backside of your tiles.  When glue is dry Mod Podge the top to seal.
Let tiles dry.  And play!!!
