Printable Animal Card Game!

I collected some of my Crossword Critters  and turned them into a set of cards.  Just print, color, and play!
You can print them from here.

 These are perfect for playing Memory.  You probably know this game already.  The cards are placed face down and players take turns turning over two at a time.  If the two match then the player keeps the pair, if not then the next player goes.  The goal is to remember the placement of the cards as well as you can and end the game with the most pairs.  

I have also used these cards for a version of Go Fish based on animal classes.  Start with three cards each if you have four players or four cards each if you have two or three players.  The remainder of the cards go in the center (the "fish pond").  Take turns asking any one other player if they have a mammal/reptile/etc.  If it's a perfect match you place the pair face up in front of you.  If they have the right class of animal but it's not a perfect match then you keep it and the next player goes.  If they don't have any animals in the class you are looking for then the next player goes.  The game is over when there are no cards left in the fish pond.  The winner is the player with the most pairs.
