Hanukkah matching game
Printable memory games are great for preschoolers and younger kids, but I have to admit I love them too.
They are such a simple game, and the first ever game my son won. Really won, not when I let him! Kids’ memories are generally better than ours and the excitement they get when they beat you is adorable.
Supplies needed to play the memory game
- cardstock (normal paper will work, but you might be able to see the images through it)
- paper cutter or scissors
- laminator (optional)
How to play the Hanukkah memory game
Download the Hanukkah memory game below. There is 1 page included with 12 different images on and it will print out in portrait. Make sure to check the printer settings.
This printable Hanukkah memory game is free to print but is for personal use and classroom use only. Scroll to the bottom of the page and add your email address to get the pdf file.
You will need to print the page twice, so you can match the images.
Have fun with our free Hanukkah coloring pages too!
We like to decorate the back of the images. So cut around the border around the edge so you are just left with the 12 images.
Then just grab your coloring pens (these are the ones we love and use all the time) and have fun.
When you have printed the 2 pages you will need to cut out all of the different images. I prefer to use a paper cutter as it’s easier, quicker, and more accurate, but scissors will work too.
Now you will have two sets of 12.
Shuffle them up and lay them on the table face down in rows to make it easier, or just randomly on the table for older kids.
If you are placing them in rows I find 6 rows with 4 images each works best.
Playing the game is simple. Take it, in turn, to turn over only 2 images. If it is a match you can either remove them from the game and place them in front of you or leave them turned over face up.
The winner is the person who creates the most matches.
We also love this Chanukah Memory Game with 27 pairs to match.
