Last week we shared this ocean printable matching game and they were an instant hit!
So many people downloaded them within the first few days, that we knew we had to turn these dinosaur flashcards into a simple matching game.
Because this dinosaur game is for young learners, there are only six sets of game cards.
This means two things for young kids:
- They won’t get overwhelmed with too many choices of cards
- They’ll be able to learn the dinosaurs name much faster than if there were several sets of cards
We think it’s best for preschoolers to play by themselves or with you as a helper. My 3-year-old and I will play together but all I really do is tell him the name of each dinosaur he flips over if he can’t remember it.
Don’t forget you can also use them as plain, old flashcards if you want to.
And, if you’re thinking flashcards are boring, you need to check out this post on fun and creative ways to use flashcards that are hands-on and engaging (seriously, these are so much fun!).
Whichever way you use them, we’re sure your kids will have fun with them!
