Balamory - Game 7

Colours game

Guide Josie Jump down the ski slope using the arrow keys. Make sure she only goes through the correct colour gates though. This game is good for children's colour matching skills and practising hand-eye co-ordination using the arrow keys. Play now >


The classic game of dominoes, with two levels. Match the pictures in the first level and the pictures and numbers in the second level. Matching games help with pre-numeracy skills that lay the foundations for maths later on - sorting and seeing patterns all help with numeracy from an early age. Play now >

Snow Storm

A Tetris-inspired game for pre-schoolers, use the arrow keys to line up the different-shaped snowflakes. There are three levels on this game but all three are nicely paced to introduce pre-schoolers to using the arrow keys. As with the Dominoes game, matching games help with pre-numeracy skills.
