Happy Camper Seek It - Printable Matching Game!

The MOST COMMON requests we are getting for more Seek It Games is for non-holiday ones that can be played in the classroom or for Family Game Night anytime!  We have tons of fun ideas up our sleeves... and this is the newest! This one will be fun to take on a family camping trip, perfect for YW Girls Camp, use in a Cub Scout Activity or just for some summer fun anytime! The little fishing pole, the owls, binoculars, flashlights, tents, mountains, bears and more - it is so cute!!

If you are new to Lisa's Seek It Games, they are simple to make and fun to play.  Each card has one (and only one) match... each player just needs to find their match to the center card first! It's a fast game and fun to play multiple rounds... works with 2 or more players, there are 55 cards. An instruction card is included. Also, I get lots of questions about printing, print settings - you can read this tutorial here for more tips on that.

Once it's printed, you COULD painstakingly cut with scissors, but these are 3" round cards, perfect for punching with a 3" round craft punch!  I laminate my cards (for durability) after punching, then trim with scissors.  My punch won't punch through lamination (I prefer 5ml pouches) - nor do I want to dull it by trying.  It takes me about 30 minutes to trim them all - so I have my girls help me while we watch something funny on TV. 

My FAVORITE way store the games are in these cute round tins with window lids - they fit the card and the stack perfectly!! I also love the tins because they protect my cards (that I spent so much time punching and trimming)!  Or, for a less expensive option, 4x6 organza bags work great and are just as cute.
