Family Photo Concentration

Every family has a pile of marginal photographs that have never made it into the photo album. Recycle them with this new twist on an old game that makes a great gift.

Family Photo Concentration

What you will need:

10 photographs

Box to hold the pieces

How to do it:

Cut the photographs in half and place them in the box. That’s all there is to it. Then write up the following rules on a piece of paper and tuck it inside. The object of this game is to match the 2 halves of a photograph. It’s not as easy as you’d think! Place the 20 photo halves facedown before the players. Take turns flipping over 2 halves. If a player finds a match, she removes both halves and goes again until she fails to find another matching pair. Whoever makes the most matches wins.
