The second edition of colors and shapes matching game for kids, that is inspired with the Montessori method (first edition in here). This time the preparation phase requires a little more commitment from parents. Game is designed for children of 3-4 years.
If you want to be up-to-date with our newest posts about DIY, like our Facebook fanpage.
The game is to match sticks with colorful figures with the template. On each stick there are 3 shapes in different colors. The child’s task is to arrange all the sticks in the appropriate places on the template.
I prepared 2 versions with varying degrees of difficulty: in version I there are only circles in different colors, in version II there are squares, triangles and circles in different colors.
Colors and shapes matching game preparation
Download and print the version of the game that you are interested in, preferably all 🙂
On the second page there are circles and other figures, cut them out on the dashed lines.
Glue the cut circles and figures on the ice cream sticks. It is important that they are exactly in the same places as on the template. Place the stick to the template and glue the figures in the right places. You can do this together with your kiddos so that they can participate in the creation of the game.
The set is ready to play matching colors and shapes game.
Explain to your child what the task is and let him or her play with combinations 🙂

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
