Butterfly Matching Game

Every year, my kiddos enjoy watching tiny caterpillars turn into beautiful butterflies. There is just something so magical about the transformation into such a beautiful creature. When Spring comes around it’s time to bring out all of your butterfly activities, games and teaching resources!

Butterfly Classroom Games

If you are looking for a fun classroom game you can play with your homeschool or preschool students then we have just the game for you! Bingo games are great for end of the week activities, or anytime you need to settle children down to transition from one learning activity to the next.

It’s important that even when playing games you are providing your preschool students with the chance to build key learning skills they will need in the coming years. This particular game helps chidlren work on their visual discrimination skills as they must identify each butterfly based on the teacher’s description.

With five different bingo boards, you’ll want to print up one for each student, then an extra boad you can use for calling cards. In small group settings students can take turns turning over a butterfly to reveal which one they need to find on their board.

Listening Skills & Visual Discrimination

For an added challenge, a parent or teacher can do the calling and announce each butterfly by giving slow visual instructions.

“This butterfly has a green body……yellow, purple and orange top wings….”

“This butterfly is mostly purple with yellow and orange circles on the bottom wings.”

Just be sure students are ready for this type of activity so it doesn’t lead to unnecessary frustration…..sort of ease into it. And of course, be near to assist your younger kiddos with finding the correct butterfly.

TIP: Provide your older students with colorful bingo counters or even mini butterfly erasers if you have them! Just be sure your

HINT: For younger students not yet ready to play BINGO, you can print two copies of the same board and make your own Butterfly Matching Game!
