This Philippines matching game is a fun way to teach your child about the culture of the Philippines! We played it as part of our country study of the Philippines and it was a big hit.
Matching games are a great early learning tool for children. They help them to learn to identify relationships and develop fine motor skills.
And our country matching sets have the added benefit of teaching cultural and global awareness!
Included in this matching game are several significant national symbols of the Philippines and a fact sheet explaining their importance.
This is a great way to familiarize your child with some of the most notable elements of another country. And it’s fun to play!
- The Philippines Matching Game printable (download below)
- Cardstock paper
- Laminator (optional)
How to play the matching game:
Print out the matching game on cardstock and cut out all of the cards. Laminate them if you want them to last longer.
Print out the Matching Game fact sheet and use it as a reference to talk to your child about some of the national symbols of the Philippines.
Turn all of the cards over and take turns turning two over at a time. If your match is correct, keep the cards. If not, turn them back over. It’s now the next person’s turn. Continue until all the cards have been matched.
For a more difficult version: combine this set with one of our other country matching game sets.
Or, you can use the cards as a guessing game. Have one person hold up a card facing away from them. The other person then gives clues to help them guess what card they are holding (eg. “it’s something you eat”, or “its an animal with big eyes”, etc.).
For an easier version: if you have a younger child, have them start by making matches with all of the cards facing up.
