Since the first time he played this Rainbow Bear Matching Game, N has been hooked on printable matching games. Interestingly, N really likes hearing what color something is but doesn’t care about color matching yet. However, he LOVES matching pictures.
Today, I’m sharing the latest matching game I made for him: Halloween Matching Game for Toddlers!
It’s a great way to work on seasonal Halloween vocabulary (he didn’t know what a treat bag is, but now he thinks it’s awesome :D), colors, matching, visual discrimination, 1:1 correspondence, and more! I added the color words for some extra environmental print and for older kids to work with.
(N was 2 years and 2 months old.)

Materials for Halloween Matching Game for Toddlers
- Halloween Matching Game pdf file (download below).
- Laminating pouches.
- Scissors or paper cutter.
- 2 sheets of paper; heavier quality preferred.
What’s in the Printable PDF File?
The pdf file has one page with six Halloween-themed images: white ghost, green piece of candy, brown treat bag, black cat, purple bat, and orange pumpkin.
Print the page twice, laminate for durability, and cut one or both copies apart at the black lines. For beginners, leaving one copy intact is the easiest way to play. Work your way up to playing a full memory game once your toddler has more experience.
