What’s in the printable PDF file?

This is a one-page printable with six Earth Day-related images: Girl holding the Earth in her arms, boy holding the Earth, a paper recycling bin, a plastic recycling bin, a smiling Earth, and a tree.

Print out two copies, laminate them if you want to make them last longer {a great idea unless you have particularly gentle toddlers 😉 }, and cut apart at least one of the copies at the black lines.

There are many different ways to play depending on the age and developmental level of your little players. Start with one copy intact to make it easier for the smallest kids to keep track of their matches, then work your way up to cutting up the second copy as well and playing with half of the cards turned over, until you can play a full memory game with all cards face down.
