Picture Match Ups
Cut large, clear, appealing pictures from old calendars or magazines. (This works best with photographs of objects or scenes that are familiar to children's lives.) Cut each picture in half and cover each piece with clear self-adhesive paper. Give the toddler four pieces at a time (two different pictures) and ask him if he'd like to try matching them up. As the toddler becomes more skillful, add more pictures.
