You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.
Step 1
Choose a color of the 6"x9" adhesive foam sheet. Peel off the backing and stick it onto half of a sheet of black cardstock, which is 5½"x8½". Smooth it out and then trim off the excess foam with scissors. One side will be your playing surface and the other side will have your pocket to store all your game pieces. 
Step 2
Cut 12 2"x2" squares from one color of foam. 
Step 3
Cut shapes out of construction paper and glue one onto each square. You will need two sets of six different shapes. 
Step 4
To make the pocket on the back side of the playing surface, begin with a piece of foam and cut it down to 4"x9". Punch holes evenly spaced around the bottom and the two sides using the hole punch. Lay this piece on top of the larger surface you made in Step 1, lining up the bottom and sides. Make a mark in the middle of each punched hole onto the foam underneath. Remove the punched piece, then punch holes on the marks on the bottom piece. 
Step 5
Line up the holes on the two pieces. Measure about 24" of yarn, thread it through the first hole at the top of the pocket and tie a knot. Now, thread the yarn through the holes, always inserting the yarn from the top and pulling the yarn through the bottom, then coming back around to the top, repeating until you have gone all the way around the pocket. 
Step 6
Store your memory squares in the pocket when not playing with the game.
