Baby Animals Matching Game With Pictures

Animals accompany kids from their earliest days. Whether it’s a real pet or a stuffed animal, a little one will adore it. Kids show a lot of interest in animals, their names, and the sounds they’re making. Animal sounds along with animal names are one of the first things little ones learn. And it’s so adorable! Most books and songs for babies and toddlers feature animal characters. Even their clothes often have a print of an animal on them.

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” – Anatole France

Kids love learning about animals and surely find baby animals very cute. Teach them the names of baby animals with this simple, fun matching game. And if they already know them this can be a fun worksheet to test their knowledge.

The PDF consists of two A4 pages with 9 animal pairs total. The animals included are:

  • horse-foal
  • pig-piglet
  • cat-kitten
  • duck-duckling
  • deer-fawn
  • lion-lion cub

Since it’s a worksheet for the youngest among us I only included a few animals. Yet you can definitely tell your little one what some of the other baby animals are called! Not sure if you know them? Here’s a little cheatsheet:

  • dolphin – calf
  • fish – fry
