mothers and their young cards

With Mother’s Day just around the corner. I created a printable for that special occasion. You are invited to download the free sorting animal cards – Mothers and Their Young. These are also great for children to do a pairing activity – match animals and their babies. 

Head to the Resource Library to download the free sorting cards.

Print on card stock and laminate for longer use. After cutting cards, draw with marker or stick dot stickers to the back of each set – one color for each set. Place the label cards in a row. Invite the child to sort cards into two categories.  After the child completed the task, invite him or her to flip the cards and self-check. Each card has to be under the correct category based on the dot color.

Younger children can be encouraged to match animal pictures when printed twice. Older children might be inspired to research and create their own book about mothers and their young that dwell in your area.

Here is what’s included:

  • 2 x label cards
  • 10 x labeled cards featuring female animals
  • 10 x labeled cards featuring animal young
