Memory Games

Busy bags are my go-to item to pull out at restaurants, doctor offices, you name it!

We have a few different things in our bag based on if we can move around or need to sit still. Having something new from time to time also helps.

That’s why we created these fun travel memory games.

If you follow along with our page you know how much we love rock painting. So it’s no surprise that we are using one of our favorite mediums to create this fun game.

How to make a travel game from painted rocks

You can make these memory games in minutes. It is definitely something that the little ones can help you create!

If you do not have paint pens you can create this game with regular acrylic paints and a brush. However, if you have it in your budget to get these awesome paint pens I highly recommend it. It really helps little ones create and the clean up is a breeze!

First, decide how many rocks you want in your memory game. I chose 12 because I wanted to do a picture for each color of the rainbow.

Try to find stones that are similar in shape and size so they aren’t recognizable when flipped over. Learn how to make fun memory games out of rocks.

Depending on your child’s age you can make them really simple. Just 2 yellow circles, 2 blue circles, etc. Or, if older or you are creating them for your older kids you can paint on pictures. Suns, swirls, etc. Learn how to make fun memory games out of rocks.

Once the paint dries you can add an outline to help them pop and give them a more finished look. This is totally optional, but can really pull your designs together.

The last touch is a brush-on sealer. This will help protect the paint from getting dinged up in the bag. Learn how to make fun memory games out of rocks.
