Here Are Just A Few Ideas For Using Our Printable Sports Flashcards


  • Ask your child to pick a card at random, and then start a discussion about that sport by asking some simple questions such as “Do you know the rules for this sport?”, “Would you like to play this sport?”, and “Do you know any famous athletes who play this sport?”
  • Test your child’s vocabulary and spelling skills by holding up a flashcard then asking them to write down and spell the sport on the flashcard.
  • Are you studying different sports as a topic with the children? Use our Printable Sports Flashcards around the classroom as part of a display – perfect when there’s a big sporting event coming up like the Olympic Games!
  • Ask your little one to choose a sports flashcard. Can they pretend that they’re taking part in the sport and do a short mime? This activity is great in groups, and the other children can guess which sport is being mimed.
  • Print multiple copies of our sports flashcards for hours of fun matching games such as snap.
