Do your kids love matching games? Mine do! They are also excited about colors, and this DIY Kid’s Easter Matching Game combines the two for a fun game to pass the time. This game is designed to get the kids involved in the actual creation of the game.
- Card stock (at least 2 12×12 pieces that have the same pattern on the back OR a solid color)
- White printer paper
- Home printer
- Paper trimmer- I have the (affiliate link) Cricut paper trimmer and like it a lot! It is portable and handy for projects like these.
- Glue stick
To make your own Easter bunny, we are going to use the free PicMonkey software. Open up PicMonkey. You may have to create an account if you do not have one (I’ve had my account so long that I can’t remember), but it will be free. PicMonkey has some paid account features, but I only use the free features and they are sufficient.
Open up a blank white canvas. If you do not have one on your computer, you can CLICK HERE and grab one that I have that I use for PicMonkey projects.
Head to the insert images tab. The bunny rabbit will be under the “Ordinary Beasts” section . Enlarge the image so that it fills the entire blank canvas.
Save this image to your computer.
Open up the image to print it. When printing, print it in a page of wallet sized images. I printed a total of 12 bunny rabbits.
Cut out each of the bunny rabbit shapes.
Let the kiddos use markers to color the rabbits. Make sure that they color 2 of the same color to create sets of matching rabbits.
While the kids are coloring, use the paper trimmer to cut 12 paper rectangles in uniform sizes. They should be large enough to fit the rabbits.
Glue the rabbits to the back of paper pieces.
Your DIY Easter Matching Game for kids is ready!
