Threading 2D Shapes

Preschool Shapes Activities - Thread Shoe Laces through Drinking Straws Preschool Shapes Activities - Thread Shoe Laces through Drinking Straws #2dshapes #preschoolshapes #shapesworksheets #preschoolworksheets #shapesactivities #planningplaytime

Drinking straws turn these simple shape cards into a fantastic fine motor activity. The kids get to practice forming the shape while working their coordination and little fingers.

Here are a few suggestions that you could use to glue onto these cards:

  1. Giant Drinking Straws (what we used)
  2. Died Rotini Pasta
  3. Beads with Large Center Holes.

Shape Monster Cups

These Shapes Monsters are so easy to make. Just place the laminated monster mouths on top of a paper cup. Then kids can sort buttons or foam shapes to feed thier triangle, circle and other shape monsters.

Playdough Shapes

This is another fun way to practice shape formation. Children get the sensory fun of rolling out playdough into long snakes. Then they can follow the pattern on the card to make their shape.

Real Life Shapes Matching

Preschool Shapes Printables - Shape Matching Clip Cards #preschoolprintables #2dshapes #2dshapesprintables #planningplaytime

Learning to recognize shapes in real life is an important early math skill. These clip cards allow children to find those shapes and work on grip strength as they clip those pictures.

Pizza Shapes
