Make Your Own Matching Game Materials: jar lids, construction paper, glue/tape, markers Attach a piece of construction paper to the inside of each lid and create your own matching game by writing letters or numbers on each lid. The skill we are trying to develop with this activity is letter identification.
This a great center activity. It is language rich. The kids can snap, zip, seal, squeeze, turn, open, close etc. I also have a flash card with an open box and closed box pictured and the words written underneath for early literacy (not pictured). The change purse can be a bit difficult so I put the music box inside as a "reward" for opening it. My kids have always liked this center. It also helps with fine motor.
