With children out of school for over a month now, we know that parents are looking for ways to keep their children busy and entertained, which is no easy task. For those with younger children, this Post-it matching game from busytoddler.com is super easy to put together and will keep the little ones entertained and engaged. In this example they made a name matching game, but you can also set it up with colors, letters, numbers, pictures, or any other words depending on your child’s age. Here’s how it’s done.
Butcher paper or large white board
Post-it notes or squares of paper with tape.
Write or draw the letters, numbers, names, pictures, or words you want your child to match on the butcher paper, then again on post-it notes.
For extra fun, hide the post-it notes around your house and have your child look for them like a treasure hunt.
Once your child has collected all the notes, they can then match what’s on the note to what’s on the butcher paper.
You can play this game many times, switching out the words to make it harder or easier.
