Handmade matching cards

This Christmas I decided to mostly make presents for Kitten. This was one of the presents: a set of wooden matching and sequencing cards. I got the idea from Make Baby Stuff but decided to add storytelling and sequencing potential to the memory game and make pairs of characters from the Russian tale "The Giant Turnips". My husband cut wood into squares, I sanded the edges, transferred images found in Internet, burned them, painted with milk paints and finished with olive oil and beeswax, so they are completely nontoxic. Instructions on finishing are from WeeFolkArt. Of course, Kitten is too young to play a memory game but she is enjoying finding pairs and listening to the story while pointing to the next character.
