Christmas Match-up Card Game | Festive Fun
How to make your own Christmas card game
This concept could be easily adapted to suit different ages of Brisbane Kids. Early primary school aged children may be happy to create Christmas images using colouring books, sticker packs and Christmas cards as a guide. Younger children could just stick cut-out images or foam stickers directly onto card or use foam stamps etc. Another version would be to use different patterned wrapping paper pieces.
Four to six images should be enough, as this will make a set of 8-12 cards.
Organise all of your materials.
What you will need:
- Cardboard or coloured paper
- Glue stick
- A4 white paper
- Contact or laminating pouch (optional) NB I started to cover mine in contact and realised that it is horrible and fiddly, but I had to continue with it
Use a ruler and pencil to mark out 4 squares on your white paper.
Draw a Christmassy image in the centre of each square (eg. Santa, tree, gingerbread man, candy cane, presents etc.)
Photocopy each page to ensure that you have a matching pair of each picture. Alternatively, if using foam stickers or stamps, just make two identical images.
Colour each image and cut out to make match-up cards.
Glue onto card.
Laminate or cover your cards in contact to protect them.
And there you have it! Enjoy playing your match-up game!
