This Match Game using stickers is a fun and simple game for toddlers!
I made this Match Game for my 2 year old in just a couple of minutes. I had a box from a delivery standing by the door ready to be tossed, but in my “make-the-best-use-out-of-every-thing” mind I had to use it for something practical before getting rid of it. And a simple match game came to my mind, after all, my 4 year old has A LOT of extra stickers laying around from various workbooks and coloring books.
Needing only 2 materials (plus a craft knife/mat) made this game a super easy one and a great recycled idea! Keep reading to see how simple and quick it is to make!

Using the craft knife cut a piece of cardboard into 8-10 squares (about 2 x 2). Then add matching stickers on two cardboard squares. DONE!
GAME TIME! Flip all of the square stickers side down, now by taking turns, flip over two squares. If they match set them aside, if not then flip them back over leaving them in their spots. Next person goes. Try to match up every sticker. Who has more matched squares wins!
