What to do:
Play a matching game, build a puzzle, or do both! Vibrant illustrations encourage color and dinosaur recognition and building a giant puzzle adds to the fun. With three different levels of play Match Up games are perfect for all ages
Face Up Match Up
For the youngest players, mix the cards and place them face up
on a table or smooth surface. Say a number or say a number
and an item together and let the child or children find the pair
and pick them up. For example, "Can you find the ladders?” or
"the 4 ladders?” With two or more children, have the children
take turns, work together, or compete to find all the pairs.
Memory Match Up
For a more challenging game, mix the cards and place them
face down on a table or smooth surface. Try to make a match
by turning over two cards of the same picture. If you do not
make a match, turn the cards face down in the same place in
the game. It is now the next person’s turn. If you make a
match, your play continues and you can try to find another
pair. Take turns until all of the cards have been matched.
Parents, use these games as teaching tools. As the cards are picked
up, have the child say the number, count the objects, or count up
to that number beginning at 1.
