Activity: Matching “D” Items With Their Names

This simple matching activity is suitable for kids who are just learning to recognize words and identify household items. All it requires is some sticky notes!

To set up the activity, go around the house yourself (the parent/guardian) and make a note of which items on our list appear in your home.

Write each item on a sticky note. Be sure to use a separate sticky note for each item; you can cut your sticky notes in half if you want to use fewer of them.

With all of the sticky notes written out, give the notes to the participants. They’ll wander the home and place the sticky notes on the matching items — similar to a scavenger hunt.

If you have more than one participant, you may want to use different colored sticky notes so you can tally up points! Provide a small prize for the kid who identifies the most items.

If you’d prefer to keep the activity contained in one room, you can make photo cards for the participants to match rather than sending them to hunt for items around the house.

Either way, this activity can help you pass an afternoon indoors and give the participants a better understanding of their surroundings!
