Lid Match

Toddler Playtime

Find things with a cover or top you can take on and off. It can be a pot with a lid or maybe a box. Even an empty bottle works. Ask your child to match the lids with the right bottom. After they found the pairs, they can try putting the tops on and taking them off again. Be creative as they get better at matching and give them different lids and containers to try.

See what your child is learning

Matching games like this help your child learn to focus. They are tuning out distractions. This is a great way to use what they already know to make connections and solve problems. You are helping them build these skills when you encourage them to test out ideas and come up with their own answers.
