A shapes tray!


My toddler (20mo) is really enjoying learning new things at the moment, and his little brain is like a sponge. So I thought we would look at some shapes. I collected together some objects from around the house that were clearly some of the elementary shapes and put them on a tray. We then spent a while identifying them and I got him to repeat the shapes back to me. Then he passed me a circle, and showed me a square etc. We read the shapes books too, and found the corresponding shapes on our tray. He was fascinated!

Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
