The domino matching game can be created with any color cardstock, or any type of stickers. For my example I chose to use 2 colors of pastel carstock to make a matching game. I selected a package of baby farm animal stickers which would match well with the farm theme. This project is simple, and easy to put together in just a few minutes. This is one that the kids can work on right alongside of you.
Many of the projects that I create use materials that can be purchased from CreateForLess.com, incorporated with basic items that you may already have on hand. I primarily create learning resources for teachers and child care professionals that have limited budgets. By shopping at CreateforLess.com, teachers can stretch their supply budget while not having to sacrifice quality or projects that would enhance or contribute to the lessons that they are teaching.
- Lamination film / Clear Contact Paper
- Domino Matching Game Template
- Avery Magnet Paper (optional)
1. Print off the Domino Matching Game Template onto cardstock. Using a template makes it easier to keep the game pieces the same size, and it saves time having to draw it out onto the individual pieces of paper. Print out as many sets of domino matching game pieces as desired.
2. Cut out the individual game pieces, leaving the line in the middle. This provides you with 2 halves in which to create dominoes OR you can create a matching game as shown in the example.
3. Select the stickers for your project. Stickers don’t have to be acid free, as you will be laminating over top of them.
4. Place the stickers onto the domino matching game pieces as desired. In the sample, one animal sticker fit perfectly on each square of the game piece.
5. After the stickers are secure on the game pieces, laminate it for durability using a heated laminator or clear contact paper.
Now you’re ready to play!
