As a 3M Post-it® Brand Ambassador, I’m creating fun, unconventional ways to use Post-it® Brand products and will be hosting some giveaways in the hopes that you’ll explore your own creative solutions.

One of the ways I love using Post-it® Notes is for an educational matching/memory game. I made this classic game for our refrigerator so that when I’m cooking, Sebastian can be in the kitchen with me but engaged in his own activity.
