National Cookie Day Memory Game

Build memory skills while celebrating National Cookie Day on December 4th with the National Cookie Day Memory Game craft.  Create your own colorful memory game from colored craft foam, scissors, markers, a paper plate, and a Ziploc bag.  Afterwards, gather friends to play this fun memory game!

What you'll need:

  • Glue (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Colored craft foam (a variety of colors)
  • Large Ziploc bag
  • Paper plate
How to make your National Cookie Day Memory Game
  1. Using scissors, cut ten circles out of different colors of craft foam.  You want each of your cookies to be unique so make sure the colors or shapes of each cookie are unique.  (see photos)
  2. Using markers or bits of craft foam, decorate the cookies.  You may wish to give the cookies chocolate chips, frosting, or sprinkles.  If using bits of craft foam, glue the pieces to the cookies.  Allow the glue to dry.  (see photos)
  3. Once your cookies are decorated, you are ready to play the memory game!  To play, gather at least three other people and a paper plate.  Place the foam cookies on the paper plate.  Have one person hold the paper plate while the other three sit down.  Have the three people sitting down memorize the cookies on the plate.  Have the person holding the plate go to another room and remove one of the cookies, then return to the room.  Starting with the person on the left, have him or her guess which cookie is missing.  If that person gets it right, then that person becomes the new cookie picker.  If the person guessing gets it wrong, the next person guesses, continuing until someone guesses the correct cookie.  (see photos)
  4. Make up your own variations of the instructions above or use real cookies to add excitement!  When not in use, store the pieces in a large Ziploc bag.  (see photos)
