Guest Post: Homemade Pot of Gold Matching Game

Here is a quick and easy learning game you can make
for your child for St. Patrick's Day. I used felt to make it, but you could 
easily swap it out for construction paper if you prefer. 

Cut some circles from yellow, orange, or gold felt. 
I used a round cookie cutter as my stencil.

Take the circles and cut them down the middle in different patterns. 
Think zig zags, curves and angles. 

Next I made a stackable rainbow puzzle. 
Cut a curved shape out of your base color and cut each consecutive piece 
a little smaller than the last. With some clouds to finish it off, it's adorable!

I covered an old ice cream cup with black paper for a
 "pot of gold" to hold all of the game parts. 

Sit down and have a blast matching and
stacking with your little leprechaun.
