This 1 page printable may seem like a simple activity, but there are many things you can do! First, have the kids sharpen their skills by cutting out the pieces along the dotted lines.

What you can do:

  • Mix & Match – Switch the pieces around. Ask your child what would happen if they took the snowball to the beach or tried to play soccer with the beach ball?
  • Play a game – Place the pictures facing down and take turns choosing pieces, see who can complete a friend first.
  • Learn about the seasons – Which season is missing? Have them draw their own mixed up friend to complete the set!

Activities like these encourage cooperative play while engaging in fun games.

What You Need:

  • Safety Scissors

  • 1 Page Printable – (Click image to download)


How To Make It:



Being able to add educational value to ordinary toys and games is priceless. The opportunity is everywhere, you just have to know where to look for it. For more mixed & match fun, try My Mix N Match Farm, Wooden Mix & Stack Pop Shop and Mixed Up Buddies !
