Learning their shapes

Because a circle is always MORE than just a circle

Just a quickie today – a PDF download to help toddlers and preschoolers learn their basic shapes. They can practice their tracing skills and then colour them in. Or if you’re feeling creative, show them how the shapes become other objects – draw a ribbon and bow on the square and VOILA – a present, turn the circle into a sun with a smiley face and the triangle into a piece of pizza… you get the idea, I’ll leave the others up to you!

If your child has trouble holding the pencil correctly, check out Draw your world, for some good advice (the whole site is interesting), and there’s good practical advice for a pencil holding trick here.

I’m off to get organised for Billycart Markets this Saturday (April 9). I’ll be giving away bite size versions of my Oaty Banana Pancakes… and I always love a chat. Come and astonish me with tales of what your kids will and won’t eat! See you there…

Oaty pancakes with strawberries

Hmmmm, I'll be at the stall that smells great!

    I totally failed this morning. My son handed me something and told me it was a square, and I said, no, it has five sides so it’s a hexagon. My husband was horrified – PENTAGON. Ooops. Found you googling about learning shapes – me and my boy!
