Elizabeth, my youngest, is working on learning her shapes and colors. Gabe and Abby are helping her to learn them. So we decided we needed to have a shape day. Many activities were discussed and a few were chosen. Here are the favorites of the day. A shape hunt throughout the house and yard ensued with the kids bringing me balls, hula hoops, cushions, place mats, DVD cases, and more. I wish I had taken pictures of the running around but they were bringing so much so fast I couldn't keep up. Next on the agenda was play dough. The kids love play dough and to ease the clean up I took it outside. The kids loved making animals and more things. I took the opportunity to make shapes with the cookie cutters and to ask Elizabeth to name the shapes.
We then had a shape lunch. Can you name all the shapes? I bet you can. The girls loved the food shaped like shapes.
This was the ending to a morning of shape fun. The two girls went down for naps and Gabe read and played a little Playstation. It was a fun day. Now I need to find fun stuff that will help keep all the kids entertained at the same time.
