  • Making shapes can be lots of fun! Using modeling clay or playdough and toothpicks, create three-dimensional shapes.
  • Using construction paper, or card stock, cut out a variety of two-dimensional shapes such as squares, rectangles, circles, etc. and place them in a paper bag. With your child, take turns putting your hand in the bag. Find a shape, but don't pull it out. Instead, feel the shape with your hand, and try to guess what shape it is. Once you have guessed, pull out the shape to see if you have guessed correctly. Have fun!
