Memory Game with Disposable Cups for Preschoolers
Memory games like this one are fun for kids because little or no instruction is needed, and setup is easy with just a few simple materials. While this game is easy enough for preschoolers to set up and play, kids of all ages will have fun playing together!
We often reach for playing cards when we want to play a memory game. But this memory game is fun to play with disposable cups. I used two-ounce plastic cups purchased at the dollar store.
Kids will love preparing this activity as much as they love playing the game. Choose options for game pieces that will fit beneath the cups, such as markers from a board game or small pieces from a construction set.
Turn the cups upside down on a tray with a game piece under each one.
Lift one cup, then another, looking for a match.
If a player remembers where the other green one is, he has a match!
The memory game is a go-to option when you need a quick and simple idea for an activity.
Do you remember where the yellow piece is?
