This set of FREE Opposites puzzles features 12 pairs of common antonyms:

  • in/out
  • up/down
  • big/small
  • hot/cold
  • hard/soft
  • open/closed
  • fast/slow
  • happy/sad
  • day/night
  • long/short
  • empty/full

The puzzles all have different shapes which makes them self-correcting. Children will know when they're made a correct match if the puzzle fits!

I recommend that you laminate these puzzles or print them on heavy cardstock to make them more durable for little hands.
