How to Make a Lotto Game for Preschoolers

Children of all ages love games that help develop skills. A lotto game provides an engaging way to work on shapes, colors, letters and numbers as well as vocabulary development – you can play solo or as part of a group focusing on any theme you desire!

Lotto cards and boards can be printed out on card stock for durability or laminated to keep their quality. Playing this activity alone or in groups is perfect for preschoolers through elementary school students, providing an engaging way for them to practice vocabulary, matching, describing, visual discrimination and motor skill development. They’ll need their own set of lotto cards and board to play – or print and laminate their own for added fun!

There are various kinds of lotto games you can make with preschoolers in mind, including one featuring familiar objects such as fruit, toys, and animals. Another version relies on counting numbers such as three bananas and six ants or counting objects with six spots; and finally there is the third option which incorporates various images for vocabulary development and reasoning exercises – for instance creating a game around food or around the house or simply matching photos to their board.

Players take turns selecting tiles from a pile. If any tile matches their Lotto Card, they place it on their board; otherwise they show it to other players and return it back into the pile – this process continues until all boards have been covered by one player. The first player to achieve victory wins. If they draw an apology card instead, their turn ends prematurely. There are various variations of this game available and it serves as a great way to develop social storytelling abilities. Sequence Card Games provide your students with fun ways to learn the fundamentals of sequencing. Used in speech therapy sessions, these are an essential tool for helping children with articulation, receptive language development and social pragmatics.

Sequencing card games offer another variation on the classic lotto game – making it suitable for toddlers through preschoolers with autism or special education needs, particularly when played individually or collectively.
