Rhyming Pairs
  1. Print and cut out the rhyming picture pairs cards.
  2. Talk to your child about rhyming words - words that have a different sound at the begining sound the same at the end, e.g. 'bat' and 'cat'. Show your child an example from the picture cards.
  3. Lay the picture cards face down in front of you. Each take a turn at choosing 2 picture cards - say the words - do they rhyme? 
  4. If they do, you get to keep the pair and have another turn. If they do not rhyme, place them back and the next person takes a turn.
  5. The game ends once all the pairs have gone - the winner is the person with the most pairs of cards.
