Crayons are an iconic part of a child’s life! In most cases, crayons are the first tool for writing and art that a child has. They are the first chance a child has to express themselves. They are so colorful, so bright and bold and add excitement to life. That is why crayons make an incredible theme for learning activities for kids. This Crayon Shape Matching Game is so colorful and fun that it is the perfect activity to help encourage kids to practice shapes and the concept of matching.

Materials needed for the
Free Printable Crayon Shape Matching Game:
Prepping The Activity
Print the crayon shapes matching game on the white side of the scrapbook paper (or on card stock).
Cut each piece separate from the other.
I like to laminate matching games to extend their life, to prevent them from being bent or ripped. This is completely optional, though!
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.
You can count your matches, whoever has the most wins or you can just play to have fun.
