Play a Leaf Memory Game
Collect leaves from trees and shrubs, and use them to play a memory game with a friend.
  • 8 to 12 pairs of matching leaves
  • Index cards
  • Glue or tape
Step 1
Find Leaves

First, find 8 to 12 pairs of matching leaves. (For example, two oak leaves, two maple leaves, and so on.)

Step 2
Glue Leaves to Index Cards

Glue or tape each leaf to an index card.

Step 3
Play the Game
  • Spread out all the cards face down. Take turns flipping over two cards at a time. If you get a match, you get to keep those cards and take another turn.
  • The player with the most pairs at the end wins.
