I made this game for a swap partner in the OWS.  I really like it, might have to make one for my munchkin once she is big enough.  I tried to make it something that could grow with him a little bit - he can match the colors now, later he can use the cards as spelling flashcards or learning how to read the names of the animals, or even as a memory game.

Here are pics of the game:


Closeups of the animals (mostly traced or stamped):

Just used some of the free clip art I found around, but I traced them instead of cutting them out and using the computer printed version.  Hee hee I'm not such a good draw-er . . . .

I am a toymaker by trade, and I must say this is an awesome game.  I've seen some really good stuff and some really crappy stuff.  Yours is great.  It will probably be used right up through first grade or beyond.

Good job.  This rocks.
