A Shape-Learning Project

Get some cookie cutters or other objects of different shapes, dip them in paint, and print on paper. When they’re dry, you and your child can work on cutting out the shapes, coloring or decorating them, talking about them, and hanging them on a bulletin board or around the house. It’s fun, it’s crafty, and it sneaks in some good conversation about shapes!
