Match Games never go out of style here at the Hill House!
As some of my children have gotten past the preschool age where match games reign supreme, I’ve implemented a few other strategies to make them last just a bit longer during the elementary years.
Make sure to scroll through and read how we continue to use match games on into 3rd and 4th grades!
Note: I’ve updated and added to this winter match game set, fresh and ready to go for the for 2020-2021 winter season! Read below for details.

Winter Clothes Match Game Packet
I created the original winter clothes match game packet back in January of 2015, which you can still download for free at the bottom of this post.
In this brand new 2020-21 version, I’ve added a few updates:
→ 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 winter and use the next level of difficulty.
→ There are 30 colored matches of winter clothing items for your child to match: snow boots, scarves, coats, etc.
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 18 black and white matches, if you’d like to save on colored printer ink.
There are only 18 black and white matches due to duplications of sweater, snow suit, coat, etc.
→ One of my favorite features of this new set is ‘All About My Winter Item’ 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.
