Children in other countries often collect items to play games. You can, too! Collect plastic caps and gather items from nature to create a fun memory game to play with friends.

Supplies
  • 16 recycled plastic bottle caps all the same size and color (don’t use clear caps)
  • glue
  • 4 small stones
  • a handful of sand or dirt
  • 4 small leaves
  • 4 small twigs

Directions
  1. Put it together
    Apply glue to the inside of each bottle cap. Fill 4 caps with stones, 4 caps with dirt or sand, 4 caps with leaves, and 4 caps with twigs. Wait for the glue to dry.
  2. Play the game
    Turn the caps over so the insides are hidden. Mix them up and spread them out, making 4 rows with 4 caps in each row. When it’s your turn, turn over 2 caps. If they match, leave them turned over and pick 2 more to turn over. If they don’t match, turn them all back over and let your opponent take a turn. The first one to have 4 matching bottle caps turned over is the winner!
