J Week- Jersey Matching Game

Anyone who knows Trip knows that he LOVES sports! Currently, he is especially fond of football, but he also likes baseball and enjoys shooting hoops with his friends. He loves to see people wear sports jerseys and has gotten quite good at recognizing different teams and sports. For J week, I made him some jersey matching cards.

I found images online of jerseys from some of our favorite teams from various sports. I pasted them in a document and printed out the cards. Then, it was just a matter of some cutting and laminating and they were ready. If you'd like to make your own, you can print mine here (for personal use only, please).

I usually just put out all of the cards and let Trip find matches. Sometimes I'll choose a card and ask him to pick up its match.

As he gets a little older, these cards will be great as a memory game. We had some elementary-age friends over the other day and they had lots of fun playing memory with them.

If jerseys aren't your child's thing, you can also check out our Thomas the Train and football team matching games.
