Prepping The Activity

Playing The Game

In case you haven’t played a matching game before, you turn over two cards at the same time. If they match, you get to keep them and turn over another set of crayons to try again.

If they don’t match you turn them back over in their original spot and it becomes the next person’s turn.
Play continues until the cards have all been matched.This free printable penguin shape matching game is a great way to learn about 2-dimensional shapes! These silly penguins are all shaped like polygons and the kids love playing with them!

You can count your matches, whoever has the most wins or you can just play to have fun.

    1. It is actually scrapbooking paper. One side has a pattern and the other is white. It’s not thick like cardstock though.

  1. Love the crayon box shapes. I just retired last year after teaching Math and Science for 25 years. My almost 2 1/2 year old grandson loves to color and I’m going to start homeschooling him in the next few weeks. So this will be perfect on shapes, with two at a time, and I can also start colors with them. The matching will have to wait for at least 6-9 months. Thanks for the free printable.
