Are you looking for a rhyming game to help your child brush up on this pre-reading skill? Try our free matching activity!
Have you seen my popular rhyming clip cards? I’ve taken some of those rhymes and put them into a simple matching game. I hope you get a chance to try it!
Free rhyming game
The download includes 24 rhyming pairs, but I kept it simple when I introduced the game to my preschooler. We played with just ten sets.
As he turned over a card, he named the picture. I included the words on the cards for kids who can read them. I also wanted to make sure that there’s no confusion as to what each picture represents.
As he flipped over two cards, he checked for a rhyming match. If the two cards weren’t the same rhyme, he turned them back over. When he found a rhyme, he put the cards in his “win” pile.
Rhyming is easy for my four-year-old. In fact, he breezed through my rhyming clip cards without any trouble. But the memory element of this game really challenged him. He enjoyed it, and I could see him learning. I call that a winner!
I recommend printing the sheets on cardstock and laminating. The rhyming cards will be very durable that way! If you’d like the blue backs (pictured), print pages 2-9 front to back. If you’d like to have white backs (or print on your scrapbooking paper trimmed to a standard paper size), just print pages 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Hi Feriyal! Click on the brown word HERE in the post.
We still cant get to download from your website and we have followed all the steps you have suggestedd.Is it because I live in Australia?
No – a lot of people from Australia use my resources. What browser are you using? And what happens when you right click and choose the “save link as” option?
