What is Visual Perception?
It’s the process of interpreting what we see. Visual perception involves a complex system for dealing with the world, not just simple observation. Reading a word, for example, requires visual perception skills.
Puzzles, matching games, and memory games are activities that aid in the development of visual perception in children. These games help children become more observant and aware as they grow.
How does this Turkey Busy Bag Printable help with Visual Perception?
In this colour-matching activity, children use their visual perception skills to identify the two colours on the base card, observe which turkey has feathers with the same colour combination, and then match them up.
Preparing Turkey Busy Bag
To get started, download and print the printable on cardstock. The Busy Bag Printable includes two pages with six base cards, six matching cards, and a label for the busy bag.
After printing, cut the cards into individual pieces. There’s no need for lamination since cardstock is durable enough to withstand multiple rounds of play.
How to Play the Game?
This activity requires the child to identify the two colours on the base cards, locate the turkey with feathers in that colour combination, and place it over the corresponding base card.
This simple task helps to develop visual perception skills, which are crucial in cognitive processing.
What’s the best way to store these Colour matching cards?
I suggest using a C6 size envelope, such as these, to store the small cards. Envelopes are an eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to traditional ziplock pouches for keeping busy bag pieces organized.
Besides, you can also find a label in the printable to stick on the cover. Thus making it easy to store and find the right busy bag that you need.
At our home, we love to keep our collection of busy bag games organized and easily accessible. That’s why we store them all in envelopes like these and neatly arrange them in containers.
As you can see in the picture below, each envelope contains a different activity, ranging from flashcards and hands-on activities to simple matching games and clip cards.
And the best part? Most of the free printables we provide on our site come with a label, making it a breeze to locate them whenever you need them!
