We’ve been saving bottle lids for quite a while at our house. They have many uses and can always be incorparated into learning & crafts.

So today, I brought them out for BirBir to play with in a easy, yet fun & educational, game.

I simply placed the lids in a bin and then added small toy animals. I used the same animals and matching cards that I had made a while back and had talked about them in this post.

Then, I placed 4 to 5 cards at a time on the floor and asked BirBir to find the matching animal and place it on top of the card. I didn’t want to use more than 5 cards at a time, just so I wouldn’t overwhelm here and she would give up! Instead, she kept going until she matched ALL the animals! She was so proud of herself 🙂
