Aren’t the the images in this new Forest Animal Memory Game cute?
Memory games are a lot of fun and they are great learning tools for kids. We enjoy memory games so much that we have quite a few of them. I am looking forward to playing this with my son and hope you will enjoy it with your kids as well.
This is a great game for younger kids as there are not as many tiles to play with.
I hope you like the printable games for kids we have been offering, as we are planning to make them a regular series on the site.

Forest Animal Memory Game Materials
- Printing on card stock (this is the cardstock that we recommend) is recommended so the pictures on the front don’t show through as much and your game lasts longer.
- Print two copies of the game. Download your free printable memory game <<<<<<click link to download
- After printing, you can check to see if you can see the images through the back or not. You can add a backing of another piece (or another color) of cardstock and glue them together with the printed side facing out. I do this because it makes them sturdier.
- Wait for glue to dry. Letting it sit overnight works well.
- Carefully cut apart on the lines. I am in love with this paper cutter and it is what I use instead of a scissors.
That is all you have to do! Easy, right?
How to Play
- Turn all of the pieces so the animals are facing down.
- Place your pieces in a grid – feel free to experiment with different layouts.
- On each turn a player turns over 2 pieces. If they make a match they get to keep the pieces.
- You can either play that if you make a match you get to go again or just go back and forth between players.
- Player with the most matches wins.
- Or play cooperatively and work as a team to make the matches together.
