Quickie

What do you do with a bunch of leftover remote control playing cards? Make a fun matching game for your adorable nephews! This can actually be done with any playing cards (princess, winnie-the pooh, or just your classic deck) you might have and since we had already been playing the matching game with these particular cards as they were when they flipped them over and found the pictures on the other side they were thrilled! If you have never played the matching game before it is super easy just lay your cards face down and then each player gets to pick two in hopes of making a match.

All you have to do is print the pictures the size of the card (I re sized in photoshop and was able to fit 4 images on one 5X7). Make sure to get doubles of each picture, cut out, and glue onto the card. If you don't have playing cards you can just use a fun patterned paper on the back. Trust me they'll be thrilled when they flip them over and find mommy, daddy, grandma, grandpa etc. It's the perfect personalized stocking stuffer!
