Penguin Memory Game

This penguin matching game is my favorite. You will need to print this page out twice.

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.

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 4 rows with 6 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.
