The first activity of 2020 has arrived! It’s “Find the Lost Matches” a children’s generator to work selective attention very fun for children.
How is it played?

See the next video on how to play ‘Find the Lost Matches’! 👇
(Don’t worry, the activities are in English too!)
Personalization of the activity
You can customize the activity to suit the individual needs and abilities of each child.
You will be able to adjust general aspects such as the type of operation, the maximum time, whether or not you want a visible stopwatch for the activity and an inactivity warning, modify the performance instructions, etc.
And, on the other hand, the parameters, where you can select:
- The size of the matrix: number of rows and columns.
- The similarity between the elements: very low, low, medium, high or very high.
- The presentation: linear or unordered.
- The number of target stimuli.
In the following video you will see step by step how to customize this generator:
What cognitive functions does this activity work?
This activity works selective attention, through a cancellation type task. The child must find a picture every time it appears among a set of images.
Application in daily life
This activity is useful for quickly detecting an object among many. For example, a specific toy in a box full of games or a specific pen in a case full of them.
Version with letters
This activity is comparable to “Hide-and-Seek with Letters”, in which children have to point out all the letters that are the same as the one above.
The new exercise we present today is with images, instead of letters, since children are always more motivated by images, and there are some children who have not yet mastered them.
