My children adore match games – from preschool all the way up to my first grader!
Besides the fact that they’re just plain fun, matching games have so much educational benefit. They are a frequent flyer during our homeschool week.
Note that this post was originally published in July 2012. I would say it is long past time for an overhaul! I left most of the original post intact, however, I updated the free printable match game. You can download it at the bottom of this post! Enjoy!

Free Match Game Packet – Fruit!
Today’s free printable match game features fruit!
→ This match game packet can be used with children ranging from Preschool to 2nd or 3rd grade. I give you a list of practical ideas for using this with a variety of ages. I hate to print an activity and then only use it a handful of times!
When you’re finished with it this year, just tuck it away in a ziploc bag and revisit it next spring and use the next level of difficulty.
→ There are 16 colored matches of fruit for your child to match: apples, bananas, cherries, watermelon, and more.
Each card includes the name of the item. You can take this opportunity to talk about beginning or ending sounds with a preschooler or early reader.
→ This new set also has a set of 16 black and white matches, if you’d like to save on colored printer ink.
→ One of my favorite features of this new set is ‘All About Fruit’ page.
I’ve included detailed suggestions for how to use this in various settings, so make sure to take a look at those if your stuck for ideas.
