Van Gogh Memory
I love making memory games that pertain to the theme we’re working on, so these will pop up lots of times over the course of the year.
Whenever I work on an artist series, I make the memory game out of the artist’s actual art! Make your own memory game by creating a grid in your word processor with 2 columns and as many rows as you need for your deck/pairs. Thicken the lines on your grid and use google images to fill in your rectangles, making sure to fill each row with the same photo. Cut, laminate, and provide for your kids in the classroom.
My kiddos love the “magic” of finding a match, and at the end of my Van Gogh week, some of them even start recognizing specific paintings by name! (“Miss Megan, I got the Starry Night match!!!!”)
