It’s the time of year when we start to see woodland animals in our neighborhood.
Down here in the South, it’s pretty common to see deer along the edges of the highway during fall.
Sometimes, we even see does and fawns cross the street in front of us. It’s pretty incredible.
As autumn closes in, I thought it would be a great time to share this printable woodland animals board game for kids to play!
This is a simple, low-prep activity to play with little ones, especially on days when the weather is less than perfect.

Printable Woodland Animals Board Game for Kids
To play this printable woodland animals board game, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
- Printer (with ink)
- Double-sided tape
- Game pieces (I used hedgehog mini erasers I got from Target, but you can use buttons, coins, counting bears, or any small manipulative.)
There are two styles of game boards: one with full color and one with white backgrounds.
Use either or both!
The game also includes a printable die.
After using scissors to cut it out, fold it along the lines and attach with double-sided tape.
You could also use glue or regular tape around the outside, but I find double-sided tape to be the easiest.
Then place the game pieces at the start and you’re ready to play!
Kids can roll the die to move their game piece along the board, moving to whichever animal they roll.
The first one to the finish wins!
