Set out the matching game of your choice at a learning center or on a table. Using a cookie sheet or plastic tray can help to keep all the pieces together. Add a handful of clothespins and young learners are ready to go! It’s not required, but you can also decorate the clothespins to look like slices of watermelon just to add a little whimsy. Encourage children to clip the clothespin onto the letter in
the bottom strip that matches the one on the watermelon.
