Matching cards –
• One pack per group.
• Shuffle the cards.
• Lay out the cards face down.
• The first player chooses a card and carefully turns it over. Be sure not to bother the surrounding cards.
• The player then selects another card and turns it over. If the two cards are a matching pair for example two snowdrops then they take the two cards and start a stack. If the cards are not a match they are turned back over and it is now the next players turn.
• The group continues until all the cards have been matched.
