Fruit Matching Game

This is the fruit version of the Vegetable Matching Game.  Some of the fruits represented are not seen frequently by children so you may want to do a naming lesson before using.

You could choose to create some dishes with the fruits that are not well known to peek their interest in unknown fruits.

There are 6 playing cards with 6 photos of an isolated fruit on it.  The child or small group of children will match the fruit with the matching card.  Ways to play include the following:


  • each child gets a playing card, and the corresponding matching cards to match their own cards
  • each child gets a playing card, and draws from a reservoir of matching cards face up on the rug or in a basket
  • each child gets a playing card, and draws from a reservoir of matching cards face down on the rug
  • one child uses two or more playing cards to match from a basket of matching cards
  • one child uses all of the playing cards to match from a basket of matching card

  • cut out each playing card and each of the corresponding matching card
  • place corresponding stickers on the back of a playing card and the matching cards to aid in keeping correct cards together
  • laminate everything
  • place in a basket
*Here is a guide to the playing cards
