Have you been missing matching games? 2-year-old N clearly did: I hadn’t made any new ones in a while, and he got pretty excited when he saw this 4th of July Matching Game for Toddlers 🙂
It was the first time we played it with cards turned face down as a toddler memory version, and he loved it 🙂 It was also a great conversation starter about patriotic holidays.
(N was 2 years and 11 months old.)

Materials for 4th of July Matching Game for Toddlers
- Printable pdf file (free below).
- Laminator, laminating pouches (optional).
- Paper cutter or scissors (optional).
What’s in the printable PDF file?
This is a one-page printable with six different images that you need to print out twice. Images are of an American flag, 4th of July star emblem, boy in patriotic outfit, girl in patriotic outfit holding a cupcake, barbecue grill, and firework rocket.
The VIP membership version includes an extra set of patriotic ice cream and cupcake images.
Play at a level that suits your kids. We started with one copy of the page intact and the other copy cut apart and progressed to having both copies cut apart and playing with all cards face up. The most recent way we’ve played is with cards face down, turning two cards over at a time like in a regular memory game, but leaving non-matching cards face up for the remainder of the game.
