Today, we want to share a super simple activity that teaches important skills. This simple shape sorter activity will help toddlers learn shapes as well as encourage critical thinking skills as they sort them.
- Construction Paper
- A Marker, Colored Pencil, or Crayon
We started by drawing three shapes on one of the pieces of paper.
Next, we cut out shapes in several colors. We ended up having way more than we needed. You probably only need about three of each shape.
Finally, we put glue inside the drawn shapes and started handing paper shapes to our toddler. We encouraged her to name each shape and then match it to the shape on the paper.
This activity took about five minutes. It is a quick way to build cognitive skills.
