summary:

An entertaining way to educate your child about shapes and colours.

Make learning about shapes and colors fun with a special version of hide and go seek.

To get started:

  • Cut out basic shapes (triangles, squares, circles, and rectangles) using different shades of construction paper. (You could also use shapes made out of plastic.)
  • Hide the shapes in easy-to-find spots.
  • Ask your child to find one shape at a time.

Help your child search for the shape by saying, “Is the red triangle under the bed? Is the red triangle on the chair? Is the red triangle under the table?” These questions will reinforce your child’s comprehension of colors and shapes, as well as the words on, off, over, and under.
