Make more matching games for toddlers, Mama! That’s what 2-year-old N would say if he could – or maybe it would be more accurate to say that he does say it in his own special way 😉 N truly can’t get enough, and he gets excited whenever he sees that I’m making a new one.
Today’s Bat Color Matching Game for Toddlers is perfect for Halloween or any day with cute, non-scary, colorful bats in rainbow colors and rainbow order.

Materials for Bat Color Matching Game
- Bat Color Matching Game pdf file (download below).
- Two sheets of paper. I prefer heavier scrapbook paper, but by the time you’ve laminated, regular printer paper works fine, too.
- Laminator, laminating pouches.
- Paper cutter or scissors.
What’s in the Printable PDF File?
The printable has one page that you need to print out twice. Laminate both copies, then cut one or both of them apart at the black lines. For beginners, leaving one copy intact and matching the other copy of each image by placing it on top works well. Later, you can cut up both copies and play with all cards face up, one copy of each in a stack, etc. until you can play a full memory game with all cards face down.
There are six different images: red bat, orange bat, yellow bat, green bat, blue bat, purple bat. Each bat has the color name in the matching color next to it.
