For kids who love to play games, this DIY Personalized Photo Memory Game will be a hit. Instead of matching random images, you can use your own photos of friends and/or family members using the HP Sprocket! It’s such a fun way to add a personal element to the game, and is a great way to help younger children to recognize family members that they don’t see often. This game is small enough to take along on trips, or is a fun activity when the kids are bored. You could also make a set to give as a custom birthday gift!
- HP Sprocket Photo Printer
- HP ZINK Sticky-backed Photo Paper – Click Here to buy your HP paper at Staples.com!
- HP Sprocket App
- 12”x12” Colored/Patterned Cardstock
- Paper Trimmer or Scissors
- Download the HP Sprocket App to your mobile device. Load the HP Sprocket Photo Printer with HP ZINK Sticky-backed Photo Paper. In the app, select the photos you’d like to print. Make any photo edits, add stickers or borders, and save. Send the image via Bluetooth to the Sprocket to print.
- Make sure to print two copies of each photo with the Sprocket.
- Use a fingernail at one corner of the photo to separate the backing from the HP ZINK Sticky-backed Photo Paper. Carefully peel it off, but try not to touch the back of the photo.
- Place your photos on the cardstock starting at the top left, lining it up with the edges. The HP ZINK Sticky-backed Photo Paper is very sticky, so be careful as you are placing it on the cardstock. If you need to adjust the photo, peel it away slowly and carefully so you don’t rip the cardstock or bend the photo. Once the photo is where you’d like it, press it down well, especially around the edges.
- Just FYI, a 12”x12” piece of paper can fit 24 Sprocket photos perfectly!
- Cut the photo cards out by using a paper trimmer or scissors and cutting along the edges of the photos.
- All of the cards should all have a paper backing. Make sure you have a pair of cards for each photo!
- To play Memory: Turn all of the cards over so they are face-down. Flip two cards over at a time to try and match a pair. Once you’ve found all of the matches, the game is over. If you have more than one player, take turns finding matches. The person with the most pairs wins.
Have fun playing your own Personalized Photo Memory Game!
