The Picture Game

D has been a slow talker so I am always looking for fun  new ways to help him learn new words and grow his vocabulary. I decided to make a picture game.

I gather various clip art of letters, number, fruit, vegetables  animals, clothes, furniture.. just about everything and anything I could think of.. and printed them out.

I cut them out and backed them with some cardboard to make them more sturdy. Instead of going out and buying cardboard I simply recycled cereal boxes, tissues boxes, waffle boxes etc. Sweet M even surprised me with a box or two he brought home from work. Oh so romantic we are. 

And so the games begin.. these are just a few of them.. I have almost 100 so we work.. i mean play in batches. I know not all of them are the same size and shape.. but I wasn't going with perfection.. I didn't want to be in a situation when I put in so much time and he decided he doesn't want to play with them.. or spills something on them.. or looses them.. the important thing is the learning. 

 Look at him thinking.. 

and we have a winner!

I can continue to add new pictures.. and when we start to practice reading I can write the words on the pictures or even on their backs and make a new game.

Hi Hena! I love these cards and like how they're all different shapes/sizes/picture styles.

It is the little things in marriage that impress huh?!?! Totally sweet that he thought to bring some boxes home. :)
