Penny’s Tips Volume 44

Hi everyone! I wasn’t going to do a post today because I am still mad that I got bumped last week for the sock post. And that she didn’t have socks made with ME on them. But, I don’t want to disappoint my loyal fans.

My tip today is a game. You will need several pennies ( at least 10) with different dates on them. And you will need 2 of each date. Then you flip them all over so their tails are up. The first person to play will flip over 2 to see if they match, if not, you flip them back over and the next player does the same. If you get a match, you get to keep them and take another turn. Keep playing until all the pennies are matched. The winner is the one with the most pennies at the end.

This would be fun for older kids. It is also good for adults to keep those brain cells working.

  1. That sounds like a fun game… but the cost of living is so high here, we may need to do it with quarters instead of pennies.

  2. We are so glad you decided not to let your fans down, despite your purrfectly understandable annoyance at being bumped last week.
    This sounds like a really good game!

  3. My ancient Mom says she remembers playing this as a kid ! Thanks for the tips………..Mom had forgotten about how much fun it is.

    Hugs, Teddy

  4. Hi Penny. I missed you. I like the game. Gotta find someone to play with mom. XX

  5. I need something to keep my brain cells working and this seems like just the ticket… er, penny, Penny! Thank you for the game. No socks with you on them? What was your Mom thinking?????????

    1. Thank you 🙂 My mom is pretty stupid, but don’t tell her I said that or I will never be on socks. XO

  6. We think you should get a pair of socks with your face on them, Penny, and maybe add a penny photo too! LOL

  7. Thanks for hosting this post, Penny. I love your tips and this game sounds very fun.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. My best to your mom. ♥

  8. Not going to get rich with this game even if you win all the pennies. Mom says she would rather have a Penny just like you! XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  9. You are such a good sport about getting bumped, Penny!
    That’s a good game that anyone can play, and we adults definitely need to keep the brain cells well-lubed! 🙂

  10. Penny, I always loved the memory game that we had when I was a kid; matching cards after flipping them over, just like your penny game! These days, however, I think I need to have pennies about 1,000 times their actual size…LOL!

  11. penny thiz soundz like an awesum game for peepulz !!! grate tip thiz week N we say tell yur mom ta order sum sox with ewe on em….tho we guess everee one else wood wanna tern then two huh….may bee…..oh well, winterz knot two far off sew ~

  12. So first of all, maybe Mom can keep those grandbipeds busy by sorting out all her pennies to find the matches. THEN they can have fun playing your cute game. Thanks, Penny.

  13. Clever use of the coins! I was fond of my teacher’s homemade card game of Concentration to the point she let me take the set home at the end of third (?) grade. Be well, darlings!

  14. Penny, this is a perfect game for you to recommend! It would take a while to get the game ready and maybe longer to play. Hope your week is going well.

  15. Sounds like a fun little game to play. Thanks, Penny for giving us some really good ideas. Now it’s time to go to the change jar to start matching dates to play. Have a wonderful day.

  16. Oh, this is such a good idea, Penny! I used to play a card game like this as a child, but now that I always seem to have pennies floating around, this is a way better way of playing. I plan on getting my sister to play this penny game with me soon. Purrs!
