Games To Download

Directions: Print out two copies of the photo sheets and cut out the cards on the blue lines. Use as many pairs as you wish. Mix them up and lay them face down on a table in rows and columns.


When it is your turn, turn over any two cards. If they match, keep them and take another turn. You can read off the animal facts for the set(s) that you matched. If they don’t match, turn them back over. Try to remember what was on each card and where it was.


Play moves to the next person. The game is over when all the cards have been matched and the winner is the one with the most matched pairs.

Drawings To Color

These beautiful pictures are half-done, so you can finish the other half. Did you know that each person has a dominant eye as well as a dominant hand? Try downloading and printing two copies of these pictures, then color one right side up and the other, upside down, and compare the two efforts! Or try it with the original picture turned away from you, and the part to be colored closer to you. (thanks to Christa for the drawings)
