Two children today had the cognitive and language skills to do the following activity: I attached pictures in a small photo album and velcro so that the matching pictures could be attached below.

I used this during a squat to stand activity. As the child squatted I handed her the two pictures. When she stood up, she placed each of the two pictures below the match. It was nice to have a cognitively challenging activity to do with two year olds who understand the concept of matching pictures. They were so focused on the activity, I think they were less concerned about the fact that they were standing up on a horse.
