This busy box has been such a hit in our home. Francie Sugar absolutely loves playing this matching game and often chooses to play it on her own.
All you need to do is buy some smallish plastic animals and find images of the same animals to match. Print them out, laminate them and away you go.
We started off with a set of wild/safari animals and I’ve added to the game each time I have found interesting plastic animals, for example pets, ocean animals and now even insects. Francie has also learnt her insect names through this game.
I simply used Google images to find the pics, they aren’t all the same size but I cut them into equal size cards.
(Looking for a free printable rather? Here is a great one)
