Free Toddler and Preschool Circus Matching Game courtesy of

Kicking off July with a bang! Who’s ready for some carnival fun? We have already been to a festival this summer–which is kind of like a carnival, right? maybe not. But I really do think the circus and a carnival is almost the same thing. Right? 

For the Carnival theme this first week of July, I chose the Dr. Suess book “If I Ran the Circus”. This free printable is a matching game.  When you are done matching the cards, you can have the older ones write out the words that are on the cards for some handwriting and spelling practice.
