Room on the Broom Memory Card Game
Memory skills games are fantastic for pre-school children especially when they star characters from their favourite story books! The fabulous characters from the renowned children’s classic Room on a Broom written by the award winning author Julia Donaldson are brought to life in this fun, easy to play Memory Card Game.
Created especially for children aged three years and upwards, the Room on the Broom Memory Card Game features 54 jumbo cards beautifully illustrated with the Witch, the cat, the dog, the frog and the bird with wording from the classic tale such as “How the witch grinned” and “How the cat purred”. There are also cards featuring scenes of the witch flying on her broom stick ‘Whoosh!’, ‘Iggety, ziggety, zaggety Zoom!’ and of course ‘A truly magnificent broom!’ scene. The final set of cards in the pack is the fire-breathing Dragon shouting ‘I’m planning to have Witch and Chips for my tea!’
To begin the cards are shuffled and placed face down on a large surface. The youngest player starts by turning over two cards for all to see. If the cards match the player keeps the pair and the play continues until the player turns two cards that don’t match. The next player takes their turn and the player with the most pairs at the end of the game wins! The key to success is remembering which cards have been placed where so you can select a matching pair when it's your turn. But watch out - if a player picks up a card featuring the Dragon all the cards have to be shuffled! This game is a great gift for any occasion and is ideal for honing concentration, turn-taking and memory skills. It can be played with two or more players and is suitable for ages 3 - 5 years.
