File Folder Games

Z is 2 years 8 months old

Z loves her wooden inset puzzles. You could give her puzzles all day long and she would be happily occupied the whole time. However, there are just so many puzzles I can keep buying without going broke, so I've been busy making file folder games for her. Here's a snapshot of what I've made for her so far.



Teddy Bear Shape Matching from childcareland 
(sorry, don't have the exact link, but this website has loads of printable file folder games

Nests in a Tree Measurement game
The yarn pieces are of different lengths and you have to place the nests on their correct spots. This idea comes from ehow



Happy and Sad sorting activity. 
The faces are clip art I got off google images. And who knew finding pictures of sad people in magazines would be so darn difficult?



Upper case and Lower case alphabet matching activity from http://www.archjrc.com/childsplace/lettereggs.html



Matching Directions
(Saw this cool idea on LittleFamilyFun and realised I have the same set of flashcards. Z does find this  just a wee bit challenging which is great.



Colour Matching activity from meandmarielearning



Magnifying Picture Match from biblestoryprintables



Leaf Shadow Match from 2teachingmommies
My printer was running out of ink hence the multicoloured leaves!



Key Silhouette Matching 
This is actually an addition activity from deceptivelyeducational (by the way, she has some other amazing educational printables) however I just traced the yellow keys onto another piece of paper before cutting them out and filled in the outlines with a black marker. Tried to give it a fun twist by punching holes in the keys and adding them to a binder ring. This proved to be quite challenging for Z.
