You’ll find printing instructions for the alphabet memory matching game set below but before heading there be sure to check out these 5 fun alphabet games to play with your printed card set.
How to Play Concentration
You will need a printed set of game cards for this game.You can choose to match pictures with words or alternatively print two sheets of the picture cards to play with younger children.
Shuffle the cards well and spread all cards face down on the table.
Players take turns to turn over two cards, searching for the matching picture and word card pairs (or matching picture pairs). If the cards selected are a match, the player keeps the matching pair and takes another turn. If they are not the same, the cards are turned back over and play moves to the next player. Once all cards have been matched, the player with the most pairs wins the game.
How to Play I Spy with Matching Cards
Your Fruit Matching Game cards can also be used in this fun verbal game that is great for older toddlers and preschoolers.
Place the picture cards only face up on the table so that the fruit are showing.
Mentally choose a picture (don’t tell your child which you have chosen) and give a verbal I Spy clue to describe the card you are thinking about, for example, “I Spy a fruit that is red and round.”
Your child can identify the card and name the object.
Continue by giving an I Spy clue another picture card.
Printing Your Fruit Memory Matching Cards
Click here to download: Fruit Memory Matching Game. Save the PDF to your computer. Open the PDF and print the pages you require. When printing, select “Fit to printable area” (or similar) to ensure the page fits with your printer type and local paper size (these have been created at A4 size). I suggest printing onto card stock or matte photo paper.
The printable includes a printed backing paper. To use the backing page, turn the printed alphabet card pages over and place them back into the printer to print the background onto the other side – note, this is optional, if your cardstock is thick enough you may choose not to print the background.
Laminate the printed cards for durability.
