silo day 4

We're big fans of the game Memory around here (as you might remember), so I made a memory game with silhouettes for the kids to play. This version has 20 cards, and the silhouettes are of the kids and their cousins. I made my silhouettes different colors, so it's a little easier to see what matches with what. Print out your silhouettes on a nice cardstock, I backed mine with a piece of colored paper to make them a bit more durable. The kids have had fun guessing who is who, and I think a set of these for Grandma's house might be in order!

This is my favorite silo yet. I love the colors you chose for them :)

This is such a great idea! I love the colors you chose as well, and this would make such a fun game for any Grandma's house! I can't wait to show my Grandma this-or my mom who will someday in the next few years be a Grandma. They will both love it. Thank you, thank you for the inspiration!

I think a set for Grandma's house is in order and would be much appreciated! They are the best looking grandchildren I could ever imagine. Such a lucky Grandma!

These are so cute! I think you should frame them...the colors are great!

This is brilliant. I love all of these projects you've posted and think it's a great way to teach kids about their families.

This is so lovely. I have such fond memories of playing "the memory game" with my Mom when I was young... this is such a great thoughtful way of incorporating family into the game!

What a lovely idea! I'm always thinking up new ways and materials to use for Memory. :)

Love these silo posts! Definitely going to give it a try and make one of my son. I was wondering if you would mind sharing what brand/model printer you use? I'm in the market for a new one and your printouts always look so crisp. Take Care!

you are a creative genius. how cute is this?!

It would be better to use yellow on the back of the cards. Yellow, like the yellow school notebooks, is proven to help increase memory!

Is there anyway I could get one of these on my profile? I would like to hang it up in my house. lol
