Hands-On 2D Shape Activities

Understanding shapes can be a complex skill for a child to learn. Providing them with a good variety of hands-on activities and giving them lots of opportunities to explore and interact with shapes is very important. Sometimes the only way to understand the difference between a square and a rectangle or a circle and an oval is through having them side-by-side and exploring how they relate to each other. And let’s face it some of those words are tough for a preschooler or kindergartener to pronounce! These hands-on 2D shape activities will give your kids lots of practice!
