We like working with shapes and have created a lot of shape crafts throughout the years but this is our first shape activity. We’re sharing today a pumpkin shape matching activity.
This is a great matching game for preschoolers and kindergartners to practice at home or at school. It’s almost no prep for teachers and easy for parents to use with their kids. A simple way to support math learning in a fun way.
Kids will work with the following shapes: square, rectangle, oval, circle, star, hexagon, triangle and rhombus and try to match the shapes with the names written on the leaves.
