How To Make A Homemade Matching Game
Here is simple toy I made to entertain my toddler nephews. The entire project only took an hour and used up several sheets of unwanted craft papers.
To make your own homemade matching game you’ll need slices of identical scrapbook paper with distinctive designs, glue, scissors and heavy cardstock or cardboard and a template.
I used a paper cd envelope as my template and cut out 6 sets of 2 matching squares from scrapbook paper. I then glued the squares onto heavy board.
Matching Game For Toddlers
To use the matching toy with toddlers pick up one tile and ask the child to find its’ twin. Watch the child carefully to make sure he doesn’t put the tiles into his mouth.
Concentration Game For Older Children
To use the tiles as a concentration game, turn all tiles upside down. Have the child randomly choose two tiles and look for a match. If no match occurs, place the tiles upside down in the same location they were selected from and the next player tries again. If a match does occur, the tiles are removed from the game.
