Valentine’s Day Counting Memory Game for Preschoolers

It’s no secret that we love matching and memory games around here. Do your kids enjoy this type of game, too?

On my site, you’ll find a lot of matching games for toddlers and memory games for older kids, but a step in between had been missing until now: memory games for (younger) preschoolers.

So I made this Valentine’s Day Counting Memory Game for Preschoolers to fill the gap.

If you play with two copies of one page of nine cards, the base number of matches is perfect for a young preschooler’s attention span. But since there are five different pages of nine cards each (covering numbers 1-9), you can easily add more matches or a whole new dimension when allowing matches that show different ways to represent the same number.

You can choose to play with cards from as few or as many pages as you want. Match identical images or different ways to represent the same number. There’s no need to only have two cards that can be matched, either, as long as you stick with an even number.
