Introducing Shapes

Age Range: 2 - 5
By: Rachel

This is a good way of introducing basic shapes to young children.

  • Provide pre-cut circles - of different colours, patterns and textures.
  • Place in the centre.
  • Then give each child a larger circle to stick the mini circles onto.

You could repeat this basic activity using squares, triangles, etc.

It is simple yet interesting for a pre-school child.
