How to download and print the Thanksgiving game
Download the Thanksgiving memory game printable below. There is one page included with 12 different images and it will print out in portrait. Make sure to check the printer settings.
This free printable Thanksgiving game is free to print but is for personal or classroom use only. Scroll to the bottom of the page to get the pdf file.
You will need to print the page twice, so you can match the images.
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 images (so 24 total images.)

How to play the Thanksgiving memory match game?
Shuffle the cards 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 for the memory 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.
If you did not find a matching pair then just return the cards upside down and continue playing.
The winner is the person who creates the most matches. Celebrate the winner with a Thanksgiving sticker.
