Not only is this game a fun way to spend time together, it's educational too! The game of Memory sharpens concentration, observation, and memory skills. These printable versions also give preschoolers practice on color identification and young children practice on recognizing and reading color words. Yes, I'm giving you multiple printables for multiple ways to play!
Below you'll find a version that requires the players to match fish of the same color. Which is why pairing the game with a Goldfish snack is ideal! That and the fact that Goldfish crackers are baked with real cheese and contain NO artificial flavors or preservatives. They're a snack you can feel good about giving your kids during a family event like Game Night. And I'm guessing since you're taking the time to look at this post, that's something that's important to you.
There is also a version of the game for matching a color block to its corresponding color name. This version comes two ways--with the text colored correctly for a little hint and with the text in black for more of a challenge. You can even combine the different versions for one HUGE, epic game of Memory with the family. Whichever way you play...you're sure to have fun!
Ready to start your own Family Game Night? It would make an excellent weekly tradition! I'll make it easy for you this week and even pick the game. Keep reading to see how to print off and prepare these colorful, fun versions of Memory. Oh, and don't forget to grab those snacks!
