Forest Animals Printable Card Game Go Fish

Create your own card game with these fun cute forest animals cards!

Part of the fun of game school is that we can be creative and make up our own games. I made these forest animals cards and we created our own game with them called Don’t Wake the Bear. It’s kinda like Old Maid but you with a bear. Okay maybe it’s not super creative but it was a lot of fun. This is a match 4 set but you can make it a match 2 or how many you want to match easy.


Print, glue to cardstock or construction paper and laminate the cards. I cut the cards out first and then laminated them to the construction paper and cut a small edge around to keep the two pieces together. The ones that fell apart I used a glue stick to keep them together. Liquid glue causes issues with the ink and construction paper.

Game 1: Go Fish Match 4

  • Deal out 6 cards to each player.
  • Play Go Fish rules.

Game 2: Don’t Wake The Bear

  • Remove all but 1 bear card from the deck.
  • Play like you would play Old Maid with the bear being the old maid card. Whoever has the bear at the end of the game woke up the bear.
