Make Your Own Memory Game

Make your own stamping pad by using a thin foam piece/sponge in a container. Add the paint to the sponge. Press the cookie cutter on the sponge and press onto the cardboard(little kids can help with this part). Let it dry and cut out the men. (I made 12 men, 6 pairs. You can do more, for older kids, or less, for younger ones.)
