Figurative Language Memory Game

Figurative Language Memory Game

  • Choose a type of figurative language you want to focus on, such as similes, metaphors, personification, or hyperbole.
  • Create pairs of cards, each with a different example of the chosen type of figurative language. For example, one card might say "Her smile was like a ray of sunshine" (simile) and the matching card might say "The wind whispered through the trees" (personification).
  • Shuffle the cards and lay them face-down in a grid pattern.
  • Take turns flipping over two cards at a time, trying to find a matching pair. If a player finds a match, they get to keep the cards and take another turn. If not, the cards are flipped back over and the next player takes their turn.
  • The game continues until all pairs have been found. The player with the most pairs at the end of the game wins!

Here are some examples of different types of figurative language you could use for the game:


  • Her eyes were like stars in the sky
  • The dog ran as fast as lightning
  • His voice was smooth as butter
  • She was as brave as a lion


  • The world is a stage
  • Life is a journey
  • Time is a thief
  • Love is a rose


  • The sun smiled down on us
  • The wind danced through the trees
  • The flowers nodded their heads in the breeze
  • The waves whispered secrets to the shore


  • I'm so hungry, I could eat a horse
  • He's as old as the hills
  • She cried a river of tears
  • I've told you a million times
