I love matching work!! There is so much variety, you can make matching work to suit almost any interest. You can often make the activity using materials you already have at home. It's so good for toddlers and preschoolers too, there is a language component but with coordination, concentration, focus and, cognitive development. Here are a few matching activities that I've bookmarked for future reference.
Above matching keys. I love this. Some of the differences are quite subtle so the child has to look carefully.
Matching shapes. This is a good one to keep in mind, this would be easy to DIY if you have some patterning blocks or geometric shapes. Perhaps this could even be made with cardboard shapes.
I like this one as the images are of the item in context or in their habitat.
Fabulous!! This is a great one for toddlers, items from around the home!
Absolutely love this! Print some cards off and go for a scavenger hunt, or present the items in a basket ready for matching. This is a good one to take outdoors and/or allows the child some contact with nature. A great seasonal activity. I'm going to try this one over the weekend!
I have fabric ready to go for an activity just like this.
This is a sweet one using fabric images.
This one is clever, matching shoes.
