Today’s free printable pack is a memory matching game perfect for young superhero fans, brought to you by our contributor Kim of Life Over C’s
Superheroes are totally loved in our house. All four of my daughters will watch superhero cartoons, beg to watch the movies, buy the toys, play the games. I’ve made superhero learning activities for my older kids before, but my littlest one, who is in special needs preschool, hasn’t had a game just for her. So, I made this Superhero Matching Game with her in mind, though the older kids will definitely be playing it too. (They’ll probably end up monopolising it, so she never gets to actually play…)
Supplies needed for the Superhero Matching Game:
- Scrapbook paper
- Laminating pouches
It is totally optional to laminate the game pieces, but it will make the cards last longer, so the kids can continue playing game after game.
I love to use scrapbook paper when I’m making playing cards or memory games. It makes a cute background for the cards and most importantly, it makes it so the kids can’t see through the cards and cheat.
Of course, if you don’t have scrapbook paper, you can always put some random stickers on the back of the cards to cover up the superheros on the front side.
If you’ve never played Memory before, it is a very simple game. You turn over two cards at the same time. If they match, you get to keep them and turn over another set of cards to try again.
If they don’t match you turn them back over and it becomes the next person’s turn. Play continues until the cards have all been matched.
If you are playing with a young child, I recommend starting with 3-4 matches and increasing as your child’s abilities grow. If you start with too many options, the game will take a very long time and your child will lose interest. A few easy matches is much better for building confidence than a lot of matches that the child struggles to find.
