Shape House - Educational Craft


Learning while crafting = multitasking at it's finest. :)
And if that wasn't awesome enough, this shape house craft for kids is so easy to prepare and so cute. Great way to introduce shapes in preschool, or at home with your toddler!


Supplies:


Make it!

1. Using the craft foam in whatever colors you choose, cut out the following shapes: 
  • Big square
  • Big triangle
  • 2 small rectangles
  • 2 small squares
  • 4 small circles (these will be little green bushes next to the door)




2. Talk to your child about all the shapes. Hold up a shape and have them name it, or name a shape and have them point to it.

3. Help your child glue all the shapes together to create a house. Let it dry and you're all done!
