Activity Description

SERVE at Home is a way for your family to spread kindness and help our community on your own, anytime, anywhere! We want to keep Austin volunteering all week long! Please RSVP on our calendar so we can let our non-profit partner know how many items to expect.


Let’s get crafty and make handmade, memory games for families at Any Baby Can. Help children work on their memory and cognitive development by creating this fun and colorful matching game!


You will need to provide the supplies for this activity. You can complete this activity on your own anytime during the month.


Activity Directions

Supplies needed:

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Construction paper
  • Glue
  • Decorative materials: markers, crayons, glitter, etc.
  • A mailing envelope and postage (optional)

Please keep in mind that these will be given to young children, so please do not use any toxic paint or materials for the project.

Feel free to get creative with your designs!

  1. Using the cardboard and one-color construction paper, cut out 10 cardboard square shapes and 10 construction paper square shapes. The shape does not have to look exactly like the example picture, just make sure they are all the same.
  2. On one side of each square, glue 1 of each construction paper shape to the cardboard so all the edges line up. This will be the back side of your card and each one should look the same.
  3. Once all the glue is dry, flip over your card and begin decorating with whatever materials you chose. You can design your cards however you want, just make sure that you have a set of two for each design that match.
  4. Let your glue dry and finish!


Please email the Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator at volunteer@anybabycan.org with any questions and to coordinate a drop-off once you have completed your game(s). Any Baby Can's offices are open on weekdays from 8am-5pm.
