More File Folder Games for Preschoolers

Z is 3 years and 3 months old

I had so much fun making file folder games last time, (click here to see the post)  and Z enjoyed  a new variety of activities as well, that I made some more for her. Then we went to India for our vacation , and Z started school on our return so we didn't really get to use them. Z's been at home for the last 2 weeks due to an infection so all the file-folders came out for her to play with. I hope you find the ideas below useful. (Note: all the printables mentioned below are free to download)

Match the sides of a die
I used the image from here to make a pre-counting activity for Z where she matches the cards based on visual discrimination of quantity.

Matching Apple Colours   from File Folder Fun

Uppercase- Lowercase Alphabet Match  from Homeschool Share
(Once you're on the webpage, scroll down to Preschool Workboxables and click on Alphabet Matching A-Z)

Matching Traffic Signs
When I stumbled upon a set of stickers of Saudi traffic signs, the first thought that came to my mind was 'file folder game!' I bought 2 sheets of the set. I love the camel sign..isn't it cute? 
This would also be a good springboard for discussion in the future on traffic signs and what they mean.
If you're not able to find stickers, you could use printable traffic signs from your therapy sourcedoodles and jots or living life intentionally

Rock Structure Shadow Match  from File Folder Fun

Fish Shadow Match from teenasteachertidbits

Growing Garden (ordering by height) from TheEducationCenter
Click on the link for sample pages to be directed to the pdf. I have to mention that I made this activity over 7 months ago and right now this is too easy for Z .

Matching Patterned Hearts from preschoolprintables

Arabic Alphabet Match (used the call cards from here at amuslimchildisborn)

Sea Creature Match from littlegenegreenbean

Shattered Patterns from File Folder Fun

Matching Flip-Flops
Found a sheet of flip-flop stickers...had to use it for a file-folder game : )
If you're keen on making your own flip-flop matching activity, you could print the black & white flip-flop printable found here, colour and cut out.

Tooth Counting from bitsycreations
Z's not quite ready for this yet, but I HAD to make this one since its so pretty and cute.
