Memory Match and Etch A Sketch
Jun 11, 2020
A few weeks ago, I went over to a friend's house to help her clear out an excess of accumulated toys. Buzz Lightning action figures, Lincoln logs, magic sets, race cars, Barbie dolls - with the most amazing outfits. I was very disciplined and only came home with a travel size Etch A Sketch and a pack of "Go Diego Go!" Memory Match cards.
Later for my Yoga class of 4 - 6 year olds, I brought in the deck of Diego matching cards. I picked out the cards that had "good Yoga poses" on them (turtle, monkey, bear, and such) and then we played the memory game. It was so simple and fun. Each child took a turn flipping two cards to find a match. When a match was made, we all did the Yoga pose of the animal on the card. The attention these little ones gave to the game was impressive.
Thank you, Diego - the kids loved it!
As for the Etch A Sketch, I'm off on a long road trip in a few days. I wonder if I'll see a bumper sticker that says, "Don't Etch A Sketch and Drive!"
