I’m excited about sharing some shape activities for toddlers today! I used to do these all the time with my son and then we recently added in some color and size sorting to mix it up and provide some critical thinking. The kids loved it, especially Skyla. As soon as she was done sorting, she would say, “Okay lets mess it up and do it again!”
The set up for this is super easy, so in a very short amount of time, using materials that you already have in the house, you should be able to set this activity up for some fun with the kids. So take a look at how we did this toddler project quick and easy!
Shape Learning Activities For Toddlers
Shape Sort Materials
1.Grab a marker, pen, crayon, or whatever you like.
2. Next grab some colored construction paper or maybe an old poster board or cardboard you have laying around if you are not doing the color sorting . It doesn’t have to be big, just big enough to to outline shapes.
3. Next, go through your toddlers toys and find anything that has a shape.
The How (Time: Less than 5 min)
1.I used a marker to write “SHAPE MATCH” on top of an old poster board when my son was a toddler, but it’s not necessary.
2. Next I used that same marker to outline his shapes. Now my son was beside me while I was doing this. He was stepping on the board, trying to take my marker, making me mess up the lines, etc. LOL. So you can do this part before hand or have them participate. It doesn’t have to be perfect and my toddler was already getting excited. This step still only took me five minutes even with the interference.
3. Let your toddler have at it!
