Not sure what to do with all those Altoids tins you have lying around the house?
Well we have the instructable for you!
Fine print: Please note that Altoids tins can get scratched, bent and marked so you could memorize what is inside of them.
Step 1: Step 1: Collect Altoids Tins
Collect a lot of Altoids tins, they should be all the same.
We mean a lot of tins.
Step 2: Step 2: Collect Stuff
Pretty much anything will do as long as it fits inside the tin.
Colorful stuff, fun stuff, textured stuff.
Step 3: Step 3: Fill Altoids Tins
Double check that you can close your tins. Some items (e.g. crayons) may need to be "re-sized."
Secure your items inside your tins.
-You don't want to lose any pieces, that would make it hard to match.
-You don't want pieces to move around inside and make noise, that would make it too easy to match.
Hot Glue is the fastest and easiest.
Step 4: Step 4: Play Altoids Tin Memory
Almonds, Lion: not a match.
Feather, Altoids: not a match.
Green and blue, green and blue: MATCH!
Shells, Almonds: not a match... now where were those other almonds?
Step 5: Step 5: Optional Educational Version
We also did a few that were color matches... String and crayons, both pink. Chips and crayons, both green...
I'm sure you get the idea.
