So many apple activities! I love that the beginning of the school year also signals the return of fun learning themes, starting with apples! We’ve done a lot of free printable apple activities, so this free printable shape apple matching game for fall is a perfect addition to the collection. Play while sipping some caramel apple cider, eating caramel apples or pair it up with some fun apple painting. No matter what I’m sure that your kids will love it.

To play: In case you haven’t played Memory before, you turn over two cards at the same time. If they match, you get to keep them and turn over another set of shapes 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.

- Select 1 shape picture and have the kids find the matching word card from among several choices.
