A fun exercise for children is to walk around the classroom or home/garden (in fact
anywhere will do) and examine objects and think about what the “opposite” of
that object is.  It should be borne in mind that antonyms are not restricted to nouns
or verbs.

Creating lists and matching them to pictures is also another exercise that young
children enjoy; cutting and pasting pictures from a magazine or newspaper of
“opposites” is also an effective exercise.  These exercises are great for
educator/learner interaction and can be included in many other grammatical or
vocabulary lessons.  

Please observe adequate safety precautions when undertaking crafts, cutting,
pasting or other similar activities that require the use of scissors, heat, small or sharp
objects, paste, paint etc.
