Today I’m sharing a simple ocean animal matching game that’s great for filling some free time.
Ocean Match Up Game
Throughout this last week of ocean unit studies, we’ve had a lot of fun.
There have been activities for older kids and some for the younger ones, but this ocean animal game is the perfect activity for the whole family.
Even though there are four years between my boys, at ages 3 and 7, they both still love playing matching games.
Plus, it’s so easy to set up.
All you need to do is print the cards out, laminate them (trust me, you’ll want to reuse them), cut them out and play!
You can also use these ocean animal cards to reinforce color matching. This is perfect for older toddlers or preschool aged children who are learning about colors.
Just grab some colored paper in gray, purple, yellow, pink, green, orange and red and set it up.
Simply place the colored paper in two rows on the table. Then lay out the ocean animal cards and ask your child to match the color of the animal on the card to the correct colored paper.
So simple and educational!
