I tried out a couple of games and they all turned out to be good. The above screenshot is of a game called Dinosaur Eggs. It is a pretty fun game to play and above all kids love dinosaurs. In this game you have 2 or 4 piles of dinosaur eggs. You have to flip one egg from one pile and another one from another pile. Remember the pictures inside the ones that you just opened. Then open two more and see if you can match the images that you opened previously to the ones you opened now. Once two egg images are matched, they will disappear from the pile. You have to keep matching until all eggs are matched. You move on to the next level once all the eggs are matched.

With each level the game gets difficult as the number of houses increase. Similarly in sequence memory, you will shown a sequence of numbers to remember.
