1. Make 2 index cards each using the first key word from the list.
2. Shuffle the index cards and place them upside down on a table or floor in a square or rectangle so that all cards can be seen.
3. Have the candy bars close so you can award the winner immediately upon picking two matching cards.
How to Play:
It is played like concentration and whenever two of the same word is turned over, the person immediately receives the candy bar associated with that term.
For instance, the first player would turn over two index cards and read both words. If they match, they get the candy bar associated with those key words. Then the same player gets to take another turn. If they don't match, the cards are placed again upside down in the same location. The next player then takes a turn.
Winner: Technically, anyone who earns a candy bar has won.
