So while you’re waiting for the clock to strike noon, rummage around for a stack of photos from the past year.
Try to collect photos specific to your child.
Print 2 sets of each.
Stick them on construction paper and laminate them.
Play Concentration/Memory by finding the matching photos.
Take a tip from No Time For Flashcards: write the year on the back of each card, and make new sets every year.
Or don’t add the year, but try to use the same color construction paper so that you can combine the sets. By the time your child is ready for college, you’ll be playing all day and well past noon.
Happy New Year!
