What’s Included

This bug activity for preschoolers includes everything you need for your child to practice visual discrimination skills, which help them learn to read. It includes:

★ 24 insect cards (3.5″ x 4.5″)
★ 24 matching close-up detail circles
Bonus: Flashcard Activity Guide

What Makes These Cards Special

Build pre-reading skills. Helps your child practice visual discrimination and pattern recognition, which helps them develop the skills they need to read and see the difference between letters.

Reuse them (over and over). Why use printables? Because you get to print them as many times as you want. And repurpose them into a million different activities. Ideas included.

Vibrant colors. Colorful watercolor art keeps your little learner focused and engaged.

Hit developmental milestones. Hands-on learning activity that’s age-appropriate for preschool and early elementary kids.

Compact design. Take them in the car, to the park, in an airplane, to grandma’s house. They go everywhere!

How To Use These Bug Matching Cards

The possibilities of using these insect cards are endless. Here are 5 of my favorite ideas to get you started:

Sensory bin. Hide the detail cards in a sensory bin to have your kiddo find them + match to the cards.

Card games. Create a deck of cards by printing multiple sets of cards and play card games like Go Fish, Slap It and Memory. Instructions included.

Scavenger hunt. Hide shape objects around the room, then find and match them to the cards. Great indoor or outdoor game.

Relay race. Little one having trouble sitting to learn? Then get them up and moving with a relay race — running back and forth to match detail cards to the right insect card.

Decoration. Make a decorative banner with the cards for your kid’s room, nursery, baby shower or classroom.

Who These Printables Are For

Parents. If you’ve got a toddler, preschool, pre-k, or kindergarten kid and are looking for enriching activities for them instead of using screen time.

Teachers + educators. Need engaging teaching resources for your classroom? Here’s your unique solution.

Montessori lovers. Perfect for creating hands-on activities at home or in the classroom.

Homeschool parents. Need to supplement a preschool or kindergarten curriculum? Add these to your morning basket or lesson plan.

Gift givers. If you’re looking for a special birthday gift, new parent gift, or baby shower gift that I can guarantee you no one else will be giving.

3. Laminate (optional). It’s optional but recommended to preserve color and make your pages last longer, but using cardstock only is fine too.

    My 4 year old had a blast with these. We started out with a matching game and then started playing a memory game. My husband and I played with him, all taking turns for memory, and it was so fun to sit and play together while also knowing he was learning. The printouts are beautiful and I laminated them so they would last longer—they look so good! Plus, the instructions are really helpful. It comes with a lot of information about how to use them with your kiddos. My 2 year old also enjoyed playing with them—there are lots of cards, so we were able to set up a smaller matching game for him while the 4 year old played memory. Can’t recommend enough!
