By Valle Dwight

Your preschooler may not be able to deal out a round of poker, but she’s probably ready for a rousing game of Concentration. This “match the letter” version offers an educational twist — while kids build their memory muscles, they practice letter recognition too.

The project: Make and play a game of ABConcentration

Get ready: Create your cards

Make it happen: Build memorization skills letter by letter
