Matching Activities for Kids

We love to do matching activities! Today we're going to share several of our favorite matching activities with you!

Matching is when you have a picture or letter or number and you have to hunt and find one that is exactly the same and put them near one another to make a pair (or a match). Matching activities are great for brain development. Matching helps kids work on visual discrimination and problem solve to find a solution. Visual discrimination is important as kids learn to read and write. Matching activities also help kids use their memories!

We like to do matching activities based on a favorite theme or holiday or interest.
