How to Use Christmas Matching Cards
Print the cards onto quality card stock, cut out each card, and laminate for durability.
Shuffle the cards. Next, place the cards face down in columns and rows. This is is a good opportunity to explain to young children the difference between a column and a row.
Once, the cards are set up, have the child turn over any two cards. Turn the two cards back over if they don’t match. If they do match, the child should keep the two matching cards.
The child should observe carefully and work to remember each card during the other players’ turn. When all the cards are matched, the game is over.
