Personalized Matching Game with Family Pictures

My granddaughter, CiCi (3) loves to play matching games. She is getting better and better at it each time. When she was 1-1/2 , I would keep them right side up and she would just pick the ones that were a match. At two, she could do maybe 3 sets and now she can do about 6 to 7 sets. Young children love to look at photos of themselves and family members. I want to give Cici a game that would remind her of those of us that are not around all of the time and keep us close to her heart. Here is a tutorial combining the two, a personalized photo matching for ages 1-1/2 to 5. Using pictures of my granddaughter and her closest family members made each one different enough that she could match them without difficulty.
