Although these matching games may just seem like fun little games to pass some time, shadow matching is actually a great way for children to improve their visual discrimination skills. This is the ability to be able to tell the difference between different shapes, objects or symbols.

And when you think about it, this skill is actually an extremely important one when it comes to being able to read. The basis of letter recognition is being able to tell different letters apart from each other and remembering what their shapes look like.

The brilliant thing about shadow matching is that it takes away any color or pattern clues so children have to focus on the outline of the shape – just like they have to when reading letters.
