Matching animals to photos

I bought a tub of animals from Target for $10 recently and made this activity for A.  I chose six animals and put them in a little bin.  I made the cards using a Google image search, printed on card stock and laminated them.  (you can use contact paper or packaging tape)
  I introduced the activity last month and she wasn't interested.  I put it on her shelf and every now and then would bring it out.  Now she really enjoys it.  I take all the cards and she takes the bin of animals.  I will show her one of the cards and ask, "where is the (animal name)?"  She finds it and lays it on top of the card.  I've also put the cards out in a line and she's matched the animal to the card that way.  I plan to add animals and cards to this in the future.  You can download my cards here:

(attempted at 18 months = unsuccessful. 19 months = successful!)
