Candy Corn Alphabet Memory
Keeping the candy corn theme going, I presented the girls (ages 5 and 6) with an alphabet matching challenge. It's a pretty standard game of memory. The only catch was I had to draw and color the candy corn myself, because our printer finally gave up working once and for all. Luckily I had the patterns from the candy corn finger puppets to use as a guide.
Once I had 52 candy corn colored and cut out, I printed the alphabet in lower and upper case, on the backsides of the pieces, for the girls to match up into pairs.
I let them play once with the entire set, and then pulled out the letters I thought C needed more work on, so they could play a few shorter, more focused games with just those letters. It wasn't much of a challenge for E, but she appreciated getting to be the "teacher" for her younger sister.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
