Candy Floss Card Games

Playing games with your child is a great way to help them recognise and understand the rules of sharing and playing together. These games can also help children to develop

  • Observational skills by encouraging children to compare similarities, notice differences and match items together e.g. by size, colour or shape.
  • Memory, and their ability to store and recall information.
  • Listening skills, as they listen carefully, remember and follow instruction
  • Patience, from waiting for their turn to playing the game until it is finished
  • Resilience, the ability to pick themselves up and try again

Memory Game

The goal is to win all of the cards

How to play Candy Floss Memory Game

  1. First pick out some matching pairs from the whole set of Candy Floss cards. Put all the other cards to one side as you won’t need them.
  2. Shuffle your pairs and lay them out face down on a flat surface.
  3. The players take it in turns to turn over two cards at a time.
    • If the cards match they keep those cards and can take another go.
    • If they don’t match, they turn them back over so they are facedown and the next person takes a turn. (All players must try to remember where the cards are placed)
  4. Once all of the pairs have been matched each player counts up their cards
  5. The winner is the person with the most sets of cards at the end.
