What is a Matching Activity?
A matching activity is any activity or game that teaches the basic mental skill of matching, or finding something that is the same.
Something only matches if it is identical or just the same as something else. A picture of an apple can be matched to another picture of an apple, but not to a real apple.
Children are able to start doing simple matching from around 2-and-a-half to 3 years, and they continue to build this skill through the preschool years.

- Is this just the same?
