Plants vs Zombies DIY Memory Game With Free Printable

Hello,

So my boys have gotten into the cell phone and xbox game, Plants vs Zombies and recently, Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare on Xbox. The Garden Warfare is completely different than the first game and has better graphics and a whole different goal to the game.

Let me tell you that this game is highly addictive! I have since gotten into the Garden Warfare and it has me hooked! My husband, boys, and I are all playing this game.

What is different about this one is is you can be a plant or a zombie and you control the characters and it is an open toy box world and you fight other people online in multiplayer and level up your characters on plants and zombies and you can customize them as well with various items and I LOVE IT! The only  thing I do not like is how bad it glitches. It does this constantly causing us to lose a whole game and have to sign out and back on. Plus, the loading time in-between the games is ridiculously long! This makes it worse when it comes to being a HUGE time waster! However, I am hooked and don't plan on quitting and finding a cure to my game addiction anytime soon! :)

Since my boys love the game so much, I created a memory/match game in photoshop for them to play with and we played this over and over the first night! They love the memory game and like to race to find the characters they like best. They even learn how to share and trade because if one has a character match the other one wants then they trade. I can't ask for more.

I am not claiming any of these characters as my own. I found each character on the internet and I just wanted to use them as my craft matching game for my boys. If you would like to know where I got a certain picture, feel free to email me and I will be glad to inform you. Also, please don't claim any picture I make here or idea as your own. I also have no affiliation with Popcap (maker of Plants vs Zombies) I am just simply a fan of the game and have 3 other fans in my house!

I am sharing with you how I made the memory game and I am also including the actual printable cards I made for you to enjoy! They would be great at a birthday party as a game or as a gift in the goodie bag for the guests to take home! These are not perfect because I just made them for our family to enjoy and thought I would share them with other PVZ lovers if wanted! :)

So here are the pictures of the game after they were cut out...

This is the back of the cards. It is needed so you can't see through the cards with the logo printed copyright Cassie's Creative Crafts.

First, you need to print them out on thick paper, like card stock. Is will be about 48 matches all together.

To get the PVZ Garden Warfare logo on the back of the cards like in the top picture, I printed all of my matches out first, then pulled up the front cover page with the logo and then fed my paper with the character matches back through my printer but turned them over to print the logo (manually printing it) you have to be careful and make sure you are putting you matches back into the printer the correct way so that the logo prints right side up and not up side down. Note: printing the logo on the back of the cards is a necessary thing because if you don't, then you will be able to see through the cards and then you might have some cheaters!!! lol!

Then, this is OPTIONAL- you can spray a varnish or protectant spray on each of them to protect the ink from running in case it gets wet. If you do this, let it dry for several hours before using. Make sure to spray in a well ventilated room or outside.

Second, after they are printed correctly on BOTH sides and protectant spray is completed, you can now cut them out. I had my kiddos help me. I actually cheated and stacked two pieces together and cut them CAREFULLY out to speed up the cutting process! :) It seemed to work just fine.

Third, you should be ready for lots of fun and playtime with the game! OPTIONAL - you can also laminate each card if you want to make sure they don't get bent and will last longer. I beat my kids once and they whooped me every other time after that! We actually got to laughing so hard playing this game that my cheeks hurt afterwards. Usually my family is very competitive and my oldest started out this way with this game and we had a talk about just play for fun and he did and we had the best laugh! It was priceless!

Well, here are the free printable of the game if you would like to print them out yourself. Remember, I worked hard on these and so please do not claim them as your own, do not sell them in any way to make a profit. If you would like to share it with someone else, then please link it back to my blog or send them my blog link. Also, I am not claiming that I made these characters myself, I got them off of the internet and can give you the sources of where I got them if you would like.

  1. Thank you for the downloads, Cassie. This is awesome! I will be printing some up for my son's birthday party. I wanted to let you know that I wasn't able to download the 3rd page with the electric and metal sunflowers and hot rod chomper. The jpeg you named page 1 is what comes up for download. I appreciate all the time you put into this and I'll bet the kids will love this gift. - Michelle
