Download and print this FREE Montessori style, seasonal matching activity and easily make this “Which Season do I Belong to?” file folder game!
We love printable games, especially file folder games! They are usually easy for me to make and they are fun, educational activities for the kids. Plus, they can be easily stored because they are usually enclosed within…you guessed, a file folder!
The “Which Season do I Belong to?” file folder game that I made uses some fun, FREE Montessori style printables. (You can get access instructions to download the PDF file further below.)
How to Make the “Which Season do I Belong to?” Activity:
This is seriously one of the easiest file folder games I’ve ever made. Just grab a file folder and using a marker and a ruler, divide it into four sections as shown below.
After printing and cutting out the seasonal matching cards, find the four cards labeled Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. Using a glue stick, attach them to the four sections as shown below.
And, that’s it! Now it’s time to play!
How to Play the “Which Season do I Belong to?” Game:
Mix up the remaining cards so that the child can decide which season each of the objects belong to. The child, then, places the cards, one by one, in the appropriate seasonal quadrant/section.
If you want to play with multiple children, simply take turns placing the cards with the appropriate season.
Please note: Some of the pictures could work for multiple seasons, so be sure to have your kiddo explain to you why they think the picture belongs with that particular season.
