Once they've learned vocabulary, children want (and need) to work with it to solidify their knowledge (See our blog post on spoken language for more details.) Our matching cards let children play with the words they love in lively games. Matching cards train the memory while simultaneously helping children refine their eye-hand coordination. First, match pictures directly, side by side. Then, add distance by placing one set of cards far away from the other set. This challenges the children, adds interest to inspire more repetition, and gives cause for purposeful movement. Next, put two sets of matching cards in the same basket or cloth pouch to raise the challenge; this requires first sorting the cards into categories and then matching cards within categories. Finally, turn the cards over and lay them out in a grid for memory matching games.

It is critical that your matching cards contain no written language whatsoever. This is a visual matching of picture to picture only. If text appears on the cards, it may subtly discourage the children from using them; children will want to read the words and if they are unable to, they may see it as a failure.
