Congratulations to sweetheart!

Due to the previous winner not responding, I drew a new winner and notified her via email.
AMMO Books will be sending her one of these beautiful Modern Art Memory Games!

I received this beautiful Modern Art Memory Game from Sara of AMMO Books.
It combines two of my favorites: kids and art.

Though I must confess, I’m not an art history buff, but this game may change that.
The art on each card is beautiful.

Though what I love most. The cards are super sturdy.
There’s no way Henry (or even George, the baby) could bend them!

Henry got a kick out of the memory game.
I have to say, he’s not a huge ‘game’ fan…
… but he sat and played with this one for awhile.
(Though he’s not the best at taking turns yet.)

He also created his own game (or art I should say).

With each of the cards face up, he lined them up in a square.
When he couldn’t reach, he asked me to place it where he wanted each one to be.

I took this opportunity to work on directions:
“Above the blue horse one?”
“To the left of the black and white one?”

After just a couple remarks like that, Henry suddenly was telling me (not pointing) where to place each card using directions and descriptive words.

His finished piece was beautiful because the Memory cards are so vibrant!

As we were picking up the game to put it away,
Henry noticed the pamphlet that came with it.
It shows each piece of art that are on the cards (along with the artist and the name of the piece).

Henry began matching the cards to the pamphlet!
I didn’t push the Art History lesson here, but this would be an amazing opportunity to teach your child about art.

Since I didn’t figure Henry would go for the Memory game with such excitement…
I first asked his cousin Ellie to play.
She played about six rounds of Memory (each with 6 of the pairs).
Loving every bit of it.

Ellie’s Mom is a former Elementary Art Teacher.
When she saw this game she thought it would be a huge hit for a fun day in class!

This game is fantastic!

Beautiful enough to keep even adults interested, and the classic Memory game is always a plus for the kids!
And AMMO Books is generous enough to send one of these Modern Art Memory Games to YOU!

    I do not play by any specific rules. My toddler had me totally flabbergasted when I first played with him. He was barely 2.5yrs old. Naturally…he was good…it had Disney characters. More on M- memory to follow in a post this week :) !

    I couldn’t resist this free giveaway offer. It is too good! I have been holding off introducing art specific material…desperately waiting to share art books of Louvre etc (circa ’60’s)

    Wow this is really an interesting art memory game. I think this is going to become my modern game of all time. We also love to play memory around our house, very challenging!

    *Favorite way to play Memory: We do both. We play by the rules, but I also let my children come up with their own ways to play.
    *I loved: KID MADE MODERN by Todd Oldham. There were lots of awesome ways to get hands on with Modern Art to make real-life connections
    *Shared on Facebook :)
    Thanks for sharing this awesome find!

    I love playing the memory game with my daughter by the rules or like "go fish". I love love love the modern art memory game. As an art teacher I would love to set it up as a center for students to play if they get done early and make up their own rules.
