Rhyming with Ants, Bats, and Cats

For this week's Family Friday, enjoy an interactive rhyming card game that can be played with multiple children. Have fun practicing animal names and building rhyming skills using Footsteps2Brilliance Animal Riddles and Rhymes books. Read our step-by-step guide on how you can play this interactive card game with your children at home!


What you need:

Step 1

Open up your Footsteps2Brilliance App, and go to Level 3 (Blue) on the left. In your library, find the Animal Riddles and Rhymes series. Read as many books as you'd like!

Step 2

Print out the animal rhyming flashcards here. Cut them.


Step 3

This card game is similar to the game called Concentration, where players match cards that rhyme.

  1. Put cards face down 10 across and 5 down. (Play with fewer cards for younger children, but make sure you have rhyming pairs.)
  2. Player 1 turns over any 2 cards. If they rhyme, they take the 2 cards. If they don't rhyme, they turn them face down again in the same position.
  3. Player 2 repeats.
  4. The winner has the most rhyming pairs at the end of the game!
  5. Be sure to read the words out loud every time a card is turned over.

Enjoy again and again!
