Matching Animal Pictures

I recently introduced this animal matching activity (that I made for O about 3 years ago) to E(1), and she really liked it.

To make this activity, I bought 2 mini animal calendars and cut them apart. I added labels and laminated the cards. I put 3 to 5 cards out at a time, and then hand E one card at a time to match. She loves animals, so this is a fun activity for her.


  1. Great idea!! I've got a ton of pictures from the zoo that I could for this activity!

  2. I saw this activity when you did it with O and loved the idea. I was a nanny at the time. I followed the general idea but instead of using calendars, I used the Factoid cards in the kids national geographic magazines. I used them for matching and memory games with the 2 year old I was working with.
