Did you catch our recent posts featuring fun new butterfly printables for kids?

Today we have Peek & Find Butterfly printables for kids featuring photographs of butterflies!

This new Butterfly Peek & Find printable game for kids features 20 different butterflies! Peek & Find is a great activity for Tot SchoolersPreschoolersKindergarteners, and beyond! There are a few variations to this activity that can easily grow with your child’s ability! Peek and Find is great for developing visual discrimination skills.

You can also add in some fun elements to the activity, or simply print, cut, and play! Below I will share the free printable, ideas for different levels of play, and fun variations.

There are two main elements of the Peek & Find activity.

The “FIND” boards {without words for younger kids, with words for a more advanced version}…

The “PEEK” cards…

Print the board you choose. Print the cards, on cardstock if possible, and cut them out. Laminate if you plan to use these cards repeatedly.

Print the Peek & Find board.

Print the cards and cut out.

Option #2 {2 or more players}

Print a Peek & Find board for each player and one set of cards. Cut out the cards.

Flip over a card and race to see who finds the object first on their board. Using Dot Paint with this game is fun!

See a video of my daughter and I playing {we were using the SPRING theme board in this video}

Option #3 {sensory, fine motor activity}

Create a sensory bin and bury the cards.

Use a fine motor tool {child tweezers} to dig for cards and pull them out and then find the object on the Peek & Find board and mark it.

Option #4 {gross motor activity}

Hide the cards around the room and challenge your child to find one card at a time and bring it back to the board, find it, mark it, and repeat! This is a great version for those of you with energetic younger kids!
