Nothing for ages then 6 come at once!
Shapes, Egg carton caterpillars, Small world beach play, Play dough invitation to play, Eucalyptus sensory rice play and Pretend baking inspired by Abney and Teal's love of porridge. Phew
So lets begin.
ShapesI used cookie cutters but i guess you could print shapes on to card stock I'm just an old fashioned,
I then drew the outline of the shapes on white paper, cut the shapes out and showed Ninky how to match them up. As an after thought i wrote the names of the shapes underneath.
This went well, simple but effective. I was pleased.
Ninky had other ideas, aren't kids ideas sometimes just the best.
He decided he had to write the name on the shapes on them when he got them right. You can see his mark making on the pictures which was a nice addition to the original activity.
He then decided it was essential that a helicopter and car got involved. This was a fun way for him to find the shapes.
I would say the shape name and he would fly or zoom the vehicle to the shape he felt was right. He did really well on these considering this was our first shape activity.
