Shape Activities for Kids

Make shape rocks for kids to use for play and learning. Fun-A-Day shares some excellent ideas for using them.

Scavenger hunts are always a hit around here. Buggy and Buddy has a free printable to take along with you for a shape scavenger hunt at the playground.

Making shape collages like these from Homegrown Friends can be a great way to expose young kids to shapes. The process also promotes creativity.

Make your own geoboard with this tutorial from Crayon Box Chronicles. I love the use of fabric loops in this one!

Fun-A-Day has another homemade geoboard that is super easy to make and great for letting kids create their own shapes.

These posts and other highlights have been pinned to the Discover and Explore Pinterest Board.
