Shapes can be seen everywhere! Why not make a game out of finding them in our homes and outside! This will be a fun activity for National Scavenger Hunt Day on May 24.
First, make a shape chart.
- Add new shapes – stars, ovals, diamond (rhombus), trapezoid, etc. – as your child learns them!
You can also download a shape chart here. Then, start your scavenger hunt as a family.
Invite your child to find objects around the house that have the shapes listed in your chart, and write them down or draw a picture of them in your chart. What do you see in this home (pictured below)?
Once you have completed your chart, count the number of each shape you found together.
