Madison and I recently tried the Briarpatch's I Spy (aff) Memory Game. This game will help your child develop their memory, matching, critical thinking, reading and oral language skills. It also teaches them to take turns, follow rules, and sharing. The object of this game is to match pairs of cards.The great thing about this game is that you can really tailor it to the age of the child you are playing with. The directions had several different versions depending on the age of the child you were playing with. Right now, Madison (who is 4) struggled a tad with this. The cards that you are trying pair are not identical. The object itself is identical. However, the two cards may have a different background or with different lighting. That being said, I do like the detail on the cards. They are great pictures. The basic memory game is played with the blue cards. You are able to play a riddle game with the red cards and the blue cards (this would be for an older child). The red cards all have riddles on it like “A dish on a duck, a bow on a bell, a bird in a cage, a pearl in the shell” Then on the bottom of the card that you should find the 4 cards that match this riddle. Some of these riddles Madison was able to do. This is just one version of how to play with both sets of cards. There are a couple of other versions that can be played also. Madison and I ended up making up our own rules and games with this which was just as fun! We counted clocks and toys and matched colors.
I would highly recommend the I Spy (aff) Memory Game! We had a lot of fun with it, and I can see it being a game that your children will enjoy playing as they grow older.
