- Memory games for children are usually suitable from the age of 3 or 4 years. At that age, children can begin to focus on finding matching pairs of motifs.
- However,younger children can still have fun with a memory game, even without following the rules of the game. Simply by looking at the different motifs and getting to know them better. For small children’s hands, the cards are also usually extra thick and made of sturdy cardboard, so they are easy to grip.
- Memory is of course first and foremost a great memory training, because it is about remembering the position of the cards and thus find matching pairs.
- Children learn to concentrate in a fun way. Because only those who pay attention can remember which cards are already revealed and where.
- Since the rules are very simple, they are very easy to teach. Children who are otherwise quickly frustrated by complicated game rules will find Memory a great alternative.
- And even though the motifs may be more childish in design, children’s memory is also a game that adults can enjoy. Because regardless of the motifs, the game principle is of course always the same. Thus, children’s memory is also a memory challenge for adults and they can enjoy the time together while playing with their children.
- As far as the variety of themes and motifs is concerned, there are countless possibilities.
- Animals are a classic here, of course, but vehicles, plants, dinosaurs. Simple everyday motifs such as toothbrushes, crayons and socks , or motifs relating to specific movies and series, such as Spider Man, Harry Potter or Fireman Sam, are also popular.
- Memories can also be a playful pastime and learning medium in one. For example, like the Ravensburger Germany Memory, with whose motifs you travel once across Germany and discover, among other things, famous German landmarks and landscapes.
- With increasing difficulty, there are more motifs per game or motifs that are very similar, so you have to pay extra attention.
- To increase the learning effect, there are also memories that are a number and memory game in one. Here, the card with the matching quantity must be found for the uncovered number card. In this way, children learn not only how to read numbers, but also how to recognize quantities.
