Space Memory

My 6-year-old is really into space these days! The other day, he found some German Memory cards in my office and wanted to play. He really enjoyed it ­čÖé┬á So I decided to make a space-themed German Memory game.

Space Cards (PDF)

There are three kinds of cards included:

  • Cards with images and words
  • Cards with images only
  • Cards with words only

You can mix and match them however you like!

Space words included are:

  • der Asteroid
  • die Erde
  • das Hubble-Weltraumteleskop
  • der Jupiter
  • der Mars
  • der Merkur
  • der Meteor
  • die Milchstra├če
  • der Mond
  • der Neptun
  • der Planet / die Planeten
  • der Pluto
  • der Saturn
  • Schwarzes Loch
  • die Sonne
  • das Sonnensystem
  • die Uranus
  • die Venus

I created the images in full-sized 8 1/2 x 11 sheets, so you can use them for posters. Or just print 4 or 6 to a page to created smaller cards.

Tips for printing:

  • Print on cardstock or on paper that has a pattern on the back side, so that the images don’t show through!
  • I printed the cards 6 to a page, and the size was perfect. Kind of like playing cards.

Viel Spa├č!

Update May 16, 2016: I just discovered a mistake on one of the cards, so it is now updated!

Easter Counting

Okay, I’m a little late on these Easter activities. But maybe you can squeeze them in now. Or mark them for next year!

#1: Wie viele Ostereier kannst du finden?

The first activity is a drawing by Lisa (our first au pair from Germany) in which the child counts the Easter eggs. Click the link to download the PDF file:

Wie viele Ostereier kannst du finden – Lisa

It looks like this:

Wie viele Ostereier kannst du finden - Lisa

#2: Malen nach Zahlen: das Osterei

Then there is a simple color by number I created for the school children. It has more to do with number recognition than counting. Click the link to download the PDF file:

#3: Number flashcards 6 – 10

I also created some large cards for the numbers 6 through 10. (I have 1-5 to go with a farm unit.) You can print them as full 8.5 x 11 or set your printer to print 2 or 4 to a page and then cut them up. I like to laminate the pages, but you could also print them on card stock.

Frohe Ostern!
