8 Awesome Memory Games Made Especially For Kids

by Lesley Chen for scarymommy.com

Memory games for kids may be the perfect way to sneak in a little educational fun at home. Kids are like little sponges and seem to remember everything (especially the things you don’t want them to), so what better way to get their brain churning than with a kid’s memory game? It’s a great way to channel that skill productively and keep them entertained at the same time. Memory games can be beneficial for kids’ developing brains, help improve their concentration, and be a fun way for your family to spend some quality time together. And while there’s a time and place for epic water gun battles or backyard ninja courses, sometimes it’s nice to have a (relatively) quiet indoor activity that focuses on thinking. Ahead are eight of the best memory games for kids to keep their minds — and yours — sharp.

Wonder Forge Disney Classic Characters Matching Game

No doubt your little one has seen their fair share of Disney movies (and likely has one that they’ve played on repeat at least 57 times), so let them play this game with all their favorite Disney characters while also improving their focus and memory skills. There are 72 tiles, and the game comes in different versions, including Disney Princesses, Disney Classic, Frozen II, Marvel, Toy Story 4, and more. It’s appropriate for kids ages three and up.

One reviewer said, “My 4 yr old daughter loves this game. It has 74 pieces, meaning 37 matching pairs. The cards are thick enough to endure being handled by toddlers. Different & nice matching pictures on the cards.”
