25 Rainy Day Crafts and Activities for Kids
Written by Jen Betterley
Curly Birds Mom Helen shares her family's fun version of the classic memory tray game that she played with her daughters, and she said that it was just what they needed for some fun indoor time on a cold February day!
Helen admits that though she doesn't remember this easy DIY game "being quite that exhilarating when [she] was young," her twin daughters were over the moon — and literally jumping up and down over figuring out which piece had gone missing! To make your own memory tray, simply gather up 9-12 common objects and spend a couple of minutes examining the tray with your tots before covering it with a cloth. Take one item away, uncover the tray, and let them try to figure out which item has gone amiss — that's all there is to it! Helen notes that they added an extra step of wrapping the "missing" item in cloth, since the excitement of unwrapping things is always fun, and that overall, the game inspired the girls to go on a treasure hunt for their own memory game items to include.
