Introduction: Alphabet Memory Game
My 5 year old daughter, currently in last year of kinder garden, got some comment from her teacher that she still does not master the letter of the alphabet.
I decided to remedy to this drama and build an alphabet memory game to help her in learning her alphabet.
Step 1: Get Some Alphabet With Images From Internet
I needed an alphabet with easy for a 5-year old corresponding images (in French in my case).
Also I wanted to have borders on the letters and to have the letters fitting in the same size cards.
I found this one on the web site coursparticuliers.over-blog.fr
I printed on a laser color printer in two sets
Step 2: Cut and Cut
I used scissors but maybe you could use a sharp blade cutter with a metal ruler as well.
I cut the 52 letters printer on paper, that quite a lot of letters to cut.
Then I search for a cardboard rigid enough but not too thick (to allow me to cut it with scissors). After Xmas I found a very nice one with a shiny blank face. And the other face was raw cardboard making it good to hold the glue.
So the hard jobs is to cut 52 cards in the cardboard (7cm x 5.4cm).
Step 3: Paper Card + Glue + Cardboard
Then stick the 52 paper cards on each of the 52 cardboard card with glue.
Put them under books for one night until it is dry
Step 4: Find a Box to Store Your Cards
I was lucky, but I found a box that matches almost ideally my cards (thanks to my wife who offered me socks for Xmas).
The round opening in the box was already cut in my box.
I just added two pieces of cardboard that I bent to fill in the empty space and separate the three raws of cards
