classroom ocean match game

This Toob® matching game is a great way for children to learn the ocean animals. It is a simple game to make that allows for fun in reading, interactive play with peers and memory recall. The game can be altered to any Toob® topic available, so make one or make many.
Step 1

Name your game and make a design to label the font of your storage case with your Cricut® machine. To make the label:

  • First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.
  • Now, click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner and then click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.
  • Place the vinyl, grid-side down, onto your cutting mat and load it into your Cricut® machine. Select ‘Vinyl’ as your material and follow the prompts to cut out your design. Once the machine has finished cutting, gently peel the vinyl away from your mat.
  • Use scissors to cut away the vinyl around your design. Next, use your weeder tool to peel away the remaining negative space surrounding the initial and name. When you’re done, only the design itself should be left on the backer paper.
  • Cut a piece of transfer tape that’s just a bit larger than the design. Peel away the tape’s backer paper and place the tape, sticky-side down, over this part of the design. Burnish the vinyl so that it’s completely stuck to the tape.
  • Now, gently peel the white backer paper from the cut-out design, which now should be stuck to the transfer tape.
  • Hold the transfer tape with the design over your storage case to determine where you’d like it placed. Make sure it is centered and straight; then press it onto your surface. Burnish the vinyl once more to make sure it’s completely stuck to the surface and gently peel away the transfer tape, leaving the vinyl transferred to your surface.
  • Repeat until all your pieces are transferred.

TIP: If you do not have a Cricut® machine, you can hand-write the game's name on the outside of your container with a paint pen.

Step 2
Line the inside of your container with scrapbook paper. Cut the papers to make layers to resemble the ocean and land.
Step 3
Scatter ocean Toob® animals around the "ocean". Hold them in place with Glue Dots®. Make sure to leave an area for the game cards inside your container.​
Step 4
Make the game cards on cardstock. Either hand-write the names of the animals or print them out from your computer. Remember to make two of each and keep the cards all the same color.
