We are spending lots of time exploring shapes with my toddler right now, and I wanted a fun matching game to play with her. These cards are great for practicing shape matching with your toddler or preschooler!
Simply print out two copies of this free printable, cut them apart, and laminate if desired. Your toddler or preschooler can then match the pigs with the same shape. You can always start with just a few shapes if your child is just getting started like mine.
- Manipulative Matching – Find small objects to represent each shape and allow your little one to match the object to the correct card!
- Sensory Bin Manipulative Matching – Hide small shape objects in a sensory bin of rice, sand, beans, etc. and as your child finds the shape, have them match it to the correct card.
- Memory – Turn the cards face down (all or just a few pairs depending on the challenge you want) and try to remember where to find the matching card.
- Scavenger Hunt –Choose a card and search through the house (or outside!) to find something that is that shape.
