Baby Food Lid Match Game

I found a great gift idea, game, and learning activity that recycles baby food lids as well. Thanks to Oopsey Daisy, I was able to make this baby food lid match game:

Here's what you need:
  • 24 clean baby food jar lids
  • print this free download using a laser printer or the mod-podge will make the colors bleed (I just printed it out and then got a color copy at the copy store)
  • paper to cover the tops
  • mod-podge
  • a container to hold the game

Simply cut out the cute animal pictures and mod-podge them into the inside of the lids. Cut the paper the size of the top on the lids and mod-podge them on....and presto, you have yourself an animal baby food lid match game.

Nathan loves to play with it...and tricky me tries to make it educational as well...he he he. I use it to teach counting, colors, animal sounds, and similarities/differences. So start saving your baby food jar lids because this would make a fun and very inexpensive gift for a 2-4 year old. Thanks Oopsey Daisy, we love our baby food lid match game!
