Create your own ice cream tangibles out of paper, foam, fabric, etc.  Write uppercase letters on the ice cream and lowercase letters on the cones

Mix them up and let your cuties match them to make a complete treat. If appropriate, take it one step further by having them spell words with the ice cream cones.

Modify this activity for younger ones by flipping the tangibles over and having them match the colors instead.

*You could use this idea for any subject that involves matching. (e.g., a set of objects paired with the corresponding numbers, language translations, and/or fact/opinion to a sentence)
