It's rhyme time here on Craft Apparent and this week we're teaming up with Sesame Street again with two crafts for you! Start here with a new spin on an old game, Memory. In the traditional version, the player turns cards over to reveal different pictures, hoping to find a match. In this version, the goal is to find the rhymes.
Once this craft is picture perfect, cap-off your rhyme-themed creativity by heading over to Sesame's Kid-tivity
page for instructions on making rhyme picture magnets out of recycled container lids. Let's get started!
4 x 6 Photos of Rhyming Objects
Decorative Paper (Optional)
Photo Mounting Squares or Double Stick Tape
- Use a camera to snap shots of objects around the household that rhyme. Get your kiddos involved in searching out the objects to encourage awareness of rhymes in their environment. Older siblings can get involved too, by being put in charge of shooting the photographs!
Psst! Need a speedier route to getting this project done? I hear ya, mama (or dad)! Feel free to use my pictures
instead of taking your own. Just right-click and save to your computer.
Rhyme: Sock & Clock
- Print out photos. I recommend having at least 4 different rhymes to create a game. The more advanced your child becomes, the more cards you can add in the future.
Rhyme: Owl & Towel
- Cut 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" card stock pieces for each photo.
- Embellish card fronts by taping colorful paper strips to them.
Rhyme: Doll & Ball
- Use photo mounting squares or tape to stick photos on back of each card.
- Set up the game for your child by laying the cards all face down on a table and let the memory rhyming begin!
Rhyme: Cat & Bat
