Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

If you are about to study the solar system with the kids, they are going to love playing our free planet memory game printable.

We love playing memory games in our home, and as a really young child, my son has managed to beat me! We still love to play memory games now, mainly because he loves to win! But this is a fun game for the whole family.

There are 24 different images to print out, but if you are playing with toddlers or preschoolers I recommend only using 12 different images to start with.

Planet Memory Game

Supplies needed:

  • cardstock (normal paper will work, but you might be able to see the images through it)
  • paper cutter or scissors

Directions:

Download the planet memory game below. There are 3 pages included with 12 different images on each page and they will print out in portrait. Make sure to check the printer settings.

You will need to print each page twice, so you can match the images. If you want to only play with 12 images though choose which images you prefer and print only that page twice.

When you have printed either the 2 (for the small game) or the 4 pages (for the bigger game). 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 either 12 or 24 images (so 24 or 48 total images.)

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 for the smaller game. Or 6 rows down with 8 images across works best for the full game.

Playing the game is simple. Take it in turns 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.
