I see so many great ideas on line it is hard to keep track of them all. Most likely this idea came from seeing various takes on the clothes pin matching game. I have seen great alphabet clothes pin matching activities. If this was your idea please let me know so I can give you proper credit.
This game is a bit advanced for my 21 month old. She can not use the clothes pins properly. The wonderful discovery that came out of this game is that big sis likes to teach little sis and little sis loves it! Seeing the two of them playing with this activity is precious. Lu holds up the pin and says the color she then asks Em where the color is on the plate. Then she attaches the clothes pin for Em. Em likes to take them off at the end and then they start all over again.
Edit: I just found Em correctly pinching the clothes pin. She just needed help lining up the plate to slide the pin onto!
