Colour Matching Game

Assalamu alaikum,

This game, which I did last year, was reinvented so-to-speak when I was trying to figure out how to actually use it. What I initially did was that I enlarged the game board and then put magnetic adhesive on the back. I did the same with the game pieces only to learn that they didn't stick to the refrigerator all that well. The game board stuck just fine but the pieces didn't adhere to the game board when the board was on the fridge. What to do? Well, for some reason it just occurred to me last night (almost a year later..hehe) to use the game board on a cookie sheet! Guess what? It works great that way! So now the game that I did, Allah Created the Colours, can actually be used and this way, it's portable!

The game has several components to it alhamdulillah (other than what is shown in the picture above). There is the game board and pieces that you see in the picture, there are word and picture cards and  two spinners - one with colours only and one with pictures only. You can use the word and picture cards to reinforce what children learned in the game. For example: spin the colours only spinner and it lands on red. Use the picture cards and have the child pick out a picture that shows an object that is red. If you use the word cards with the spinner that has only pictures on it, you can have your child pick out the word that matches the picture that the spinner landed on (see the picture below insha'Allah). Lots of ways to play insha'Allah!

Here are the files for you to enjoy insha'Allah (I hope I linked all of those files correctly insha'Allah):

Enjoy insha'Allah!


  1. JazakAllah khair sister. May Allah reward you as you are doing it without money and only for la achirah. I am using your hajj cards for lesson in the masjid. Big kids can colour them and make cards for playing at home.Thanks a lot for making learning fun. Jamila

  2. Assalamu alaikum,

    Wa iyaki dear sis Jamila *smile*. Ameen to your dua and the goal is that this is all done with pleasure for the Sake of Allaah, seeking His Noble Face.

    The idea that you mentioned...have you done that? I'd love to see it insha'Allaah *smile*. The sisters here make everything look so nice masha'Allaah!
