This matching game was inspired by the show Play With Me Sesame. If you have never seen it, it’s where the Sesame Street characters play games and “interact” with kids. On a recent episode, they played a game where they had to match socks on a computer screen. This gave me the idea of creating a hands-on sock matching game. This was very easy to create with some basic supplies.
You will need:
- Patterned paper
- Large piece of construction paper
I used large 12 X 12 scrapbook paper and this seemed like a good use for it since I can’t remember the last time I scrapbooked. I stacked a few sheets together and folded them in half. Then, I drew socks on them with a black marker and cut them out. When you are done with this step you should have two of each kind of sock.
Little C is very proud of her socks! All the kids did great with this activity. If you want to reuse the socks you can skip the part where you glue them on the paper and just have the kids match them up at a table or on the floor.
