Matching Game

Remember these matching games I made? I decided to make one for my nephew's 6th birthday. He is having a Battle Force 5 party. So, rather than using colored paper or an old matching game like I did before, I printed images off of the internet. This time I am including step-by-step photos for you.First, gather your materials. You will need a 2-inch circle punch (or a round object to trace about 2-inches in diameter), 12-16 juice lids, 12-16 images (2 of each), a brush, and Mod Podge.Punch or trace and cut your images into 2-inch circles.Apply a thin, even layer of Mod Podge to each circle and place one on each juice lid. Let dry. You may want to seal it with some spray acrylic sealant. I didn't and they seem fine but with a lot of use, this would probably be a smart idea.Make a little draw-string bag to store your game in, using this tutorial. Now you can say "Yay! I made it." Then let those little guys get their hands on it!


  1. That is so clever! So much sturdier than just using paper, and a great way to recycle juice lids. Thanks for the idea!

  2. I made some like this with letters a while ago and my son seemed to enjoy them...I had never thought of making a memory game quite like this though! I love the pictures you used! This game turned out adorable!


Yay, You Made a Comment!
