Three professors who are teaching elements of the early childhood care and education curriculum ( language, arts and handcrafts as artistic expression, and food and nutrition) cooperated to teach students how to make Karuta picture cards for a traditional Japanese game, in order to findan effective teaching method in an integrated class. After making and playing Karuta, students evaluated their learning objectively. The last step of this activity was asking children to play Karuta games in a kindergarten where an alumna works as a teacher. Through this activity, students not only enlarged their knowledge of food and nutrition, but they also learned how to put the acquired knowledge into a food Karuta game by using appropriate words and pictures. Because some students felt that they had become more competent through this activity, they went on to make sophisticatedly decorated boxes. In addition, it can be said that this trial improves the abilities of kindergarten teachers and/or child care workers. It was also observed how important a teachers’ way of communicating with children is during the playing of Karuta. Appropriate and inappropriate communication with children affected the results of Karuta games. Furthermore, this study points out the importance of creating teaching materials or games through collaboration with college students and alumna.
