Owl Opposites Memory

Recently we shared our first two sets of Owl Opposites printables, a set of opposites flashcards and a set of mix and match printables. We have a series of printables featuring our Owl Opposites friends coming, so be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss any!

Owl Opposites Memory Game Printables

Today  I have a set of owl opposites Memory game cards for you! My daughter LOVES these! Before playing memory with them, I had her match them all up so she knew which cards went together.  This might be confusing for younger kids since the matches don’t look alike, but are opposites!

After I made sure she knew them all, we played!

Want your cards smaller? See how to scale down a PDF file here to print multiple per page.

Opposites are a great thing to expose young children to, choose a few if you have a toddler or preschooler and add more as they are mastered. Don’t bring them all out at once, gradually build up! We have many more owl opposites activities coming soon, so you’ll get many more ideas on how to have fun teaching opposites!
