a new memory

I loved playing memory as a kid, so I bought the classic memory game for my kids last year. For some reason, they didn't love it the way I had hoped. The cards are a bit small for their tiny fingers, and there are so many pairs they could never remember where anything was. I figured they were just too young to play memory.. 

Until I discovered these great memory cards at Pottery Barn Kids (they were on sale when I bought them a few weeks ago). These cards are a nice size for little hands.. about 3 1/2 inches square. I'm loving the graphic illustrations and the bright color palette. And there are only 16 pairs to match (about perfect for Bee and C).

Memory is such a great game. All the kids I babysit enjoy it a lot, even if it requires a little convincing at first to get them to try it. They're all so obsessed with cartoons that, even at six, they don't want to try new games. Or any games, for that matter.
