Hands On Color Matching Game

Hands On Color Matching Game

Hands- On Color Matching

Studies have shown the benefits of children practicing matching skills at an early age.  One of the main benefits is that helps stimulate learning and a love of learning.  Also, it helps them start using the process of elimination, and other simple reasoning skills to solve the task at hand.

This particular hands-on game is easy and free! I just picked up some free paint strip cards at Walmart (I tried to get one of each basic color, red, brown, blue, yellow, orange, etc.), cut the rectangle end off the sides, glued that onto a clothes pin. How do you play? The child needs to match the colors by clipping the pin onto the correct color square.

My almost 4-year-old asks to play this all the time!  Plus, she loves it because she helped me make it!  Hands on matching games are so easy to make  (you can do it with almost anything-stickers, matching letters or numbers) and you can even buy them at the Dollar Store.
In this day and age, all kids love technology- why not find some matching games for them to play online.  Check these ones out:
