My Sister and her family gave my daughter this for Christmas:
It is a Photo Memory Game!
Isn't that adorable!? This would be a great way to keep those long distance relatives faces familiar for your kids. Just get two pictures of each person you want to include and then glue it onto thick cardstock. I recommend laminating it so that it will last a long time.
This makes a great stocking stuffer (I know, a few months early) an inexpensive birthday present, or just a game for your kids. Have fun!
