Shape Activities for Kids

Sharing is caring!

Do you have a little one you’re teaching shapes to? Are you on the hunt for shape activities for kids to make learning fun?

Have you ever heard of a book called Mouse Shapes? It is by Ellen Stoll Walsh and is the precious story of three clever little mice who use shapes to create things.

They use a triangle and a square to make a house.

They use a rectangle and two circles to make a wagon.

Guess what they use to make a fish?

  1. What a smart idea for a book/activity pairing! My little guy has learned most of his shapes, but we still need to work on the diamond and making things out of shapes. Thanks for the printables!
