Homemade matching game for kids

Not long ago my ds6 brought home a cute matching game from school and it’s so simple to make with so many different applications that I thought I’d share!

His game was a set of picture cards of animals and corresponding cards with the animal names.  (The purpose of this game was reading practice.)  The cards are turned upside down and set up in rows in a graph pattern.  Each player turns over two cards on his turn, with the goal being to make a match.

You can apply this to any area – for example, colors to words, pictures to words, Hebrew words to the translation, print to script letters…All you have to do is think about what concept you’d like to reinforce with this game, make cards with pictures or words on them.  Great for memory as well as learning.

Have fun playing together!
