Cute Forest Animal Memory Game

Aren’t 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.

This is a great game for younger kids as there are not as many tiles to play with.

Printable Games for Kids: Forest Animal Memory Game

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

  • Print on card stock (this is the cardstock that we recommend) This 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?

Forest Animal Memory Game Directions

  • 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.

Hi Dee,

I didn't add lines however if you use a paper cutter (I have a very small paper crafting model) everything lines up just right. If you are using a scissors you could lightly draw a line on with a ruler. Sorry for any inconvenience. Our animal memory game has a lot of downloads. I hope you can still use it.
