What’s in the printable PDF file?
The printable includes a page of six cards with pineapples showing six different facial expressions corresponding to different emotions: happy, excited, worried, sad, angry, surprised.
Print two copies of the page and cut apart one of the copies for the most basic matching game for toddlers. Or just print one copy as a conversation starters about emotions. Regardless, my kids think it’s super fun to imitate the facial expressions on each card 🙂
Do you have toddlers who love matching? I have a book of matching games for them!
In my book Match This! Matching Games for Toddlers, I share 30 different matching games that are perfect for toddlers with a limited number of matches (you can mix and match different sets for a greater challenge) and large cards that are easy to pick up and hold. I’ve included instructions for playing memory and matching games at all skill levels and how to extend the activity with other learning objectives for older kids.
