Arctic Animals Memory Game Free Preschool Printable
See, the key is to find an activity with a very simple premise (like memory) but tweak the learning objectives a bit for each kiddo.
So when Cap’n M is picking, we might talk about what animals he’s seeing to help him with his speech delay.
A-Man might have a discussion about the different colors in the cards and taking turns.
Mr. C might use the cards for some math fun. (How many matches are left? What fraction of the cards have already been taken?)
What You Need to Use the Free Arctic Animals Memory Game Printable

How to Use the Arctic Animals Memory Game Free Printable
First you’re going to download and print your Arctic Animals memory game printable. If possible, try to print on cardstock, but you can still do this with regular paper.
Once you’ve downloaded and printed out the Halloween memory game printable, you can laminate it if you want to reuse the cards again and again. (This isn’t required, but it’s definitely recommended!)
Next you’re going to have your kids (Or you can do it if you want straighter lines!) cut out each of the square cards along the black lines. We love using these scissors with paper or cardstock.
(Related: Check out why to give your preschooler scissors, and 10+ cutting activities for kids here!)
Once your cards are ready, let your kids help you mix them all up and place them face down on the table in front of you.
Then everyone gets to take turns selecting and flipping over two cards. If they match, you get to keep them, if they don’t you flip them back over.
Pay attention, though! You definitely want to remember which cards you’ve seen so you can find matches more easily!
When all cards have been matched, the person with the most matches wins!
