My kids have gotten older, so fun printable games have become less of a norm in our household. I was home, feeling under the weather, and decided that I needed something to occupy my mind, that also could be done from a relaxed position… so I created festive Printable Thanksgiving Memory Cards for kids! If you’ve spent any time around here, you may remember the Easter Memory Game I made several years ago. This game is simple, inexpensive, and fun to play for your children!
Children’s Matching Game
This printable game is easy to play and helps children with their memory skills. I don’t know about you, but getting the kids out from behind the screens is always a priority. This educational game is a great way to do that, and spend some quality time together as a family! It’s easy enough that toddlers can play, as can elementary students.
Although I’m sure you already know how to play, let’s get to the instructions!
Download the Printable Thanksgiving Themed Cards.
For personal use only. Do not alter.
Save the file to your computer and open it in Adobe Reader. Print two copies of the file onto cardstock.
Carefully cut out the cards, which are perfectly sized for little hands.
How to Play this Card Game
Set up the game but placing the cards face down in a grid pattern.
Players take turns flipping over two cards at a time. If a player gets a matching card, they get to go again. If they do not get a match, it is the next player’s turn. The player with the most matches at the end is the winner!
When gameplay is done, simply stack the cards and store them in a small box or ziplock bag.
I hope your children enjoy this fun memory game and the festive pictures on the cards. It’s great for playing with cousins, grandparents, or even during a Thanksgiving celebration at school!
