Memorizing the Memory Game

The Memory game was a gift to the children of the Sanctuary Babies Home during my last visit. I looked forward to playing with the children again this time so we hauled out the game, which was surprisingly still complete. The card titles were marked numerically to ensure all the pieces were there. Good idea? Elijah and Huntington, rather than remembering where the pictures are on the board, memorized which number matched which number. Right, why bother turning the card over when there’s a number on the card to indicate which go together. Seems like cheating to me but these boys were sharp, impressive, and they still had to memorize something. Silly boys.

Elijah and Huntington are the best, the children chant each time they make a match.
