A shape and color matching game lasting about 5-10 minutes
The cards are shuffled, and each player is dealt 4 cards to hold. A card from the pack is turned over and put in the middle of the table. When it is their turn, each player has to try and place a card down in the middle of the table – but the card either has to be the same color as the one before, or show the same animal. If they can’t play a card, they pick one up and the game moves to the next player. The first player to have put all their cards in the middle of the table wins the game.
A great way to build a young child's color recognition and attention to detail.
