INSIDE: Post It Present Match is a fun and always easy matching activity for toddlers and preschoolers. Its a great activity for birthdays, Christmas or anytime of the year!
Setting Up Post It Present Match
We have been using post it notes a lot recently in our house. My kids love playing and drawing on them. If I leave a pad out by accident it will get used up very quickly and I will find them stuck all around my house.
Setting up this post it matching is very easy. Grab your butcher paper and cut off a large sheet. Grab a pad of post it notes and trace squares all over your sheet using a sharpie. Next, draw bows ontop of each present and viola you have presents!
Playing Post It Present Match
For this matching activity I wanted to practice letters with my toddlers, specifically, matching upper and lower case letters. The wonderful things about this great activity is that it can be modified to meet any learning goal you have such as numbers, shapes and colours.
I wrote lowercase letters on the butcher paper presents and uppercase on the post it notes. I taped the butcher paper to the wall and arranged them uppercase letters on the wall underneath it.
Then I invited my toddlers to come and match the letters! Super simple and tons of fun! As the worked I called out the letters and asked them the sounds they made. I also asked them to think of words or names that started with that letters. I helped them as needed
