Shapes Activities for Toddlers

I've had a lot of requests lately for shapes activities for toddlers. Shapes are a great early numeracy activity, and these are great activities to combine with our toddler counting activities and ABC activities.

When introducing shapes to toddlers, start with the world around you. Point out shapes in the environment, discuss what shapes look like and play eye-spy with shapes (eye-epy a red circle etc..). Talk about the features of the shapes:

  • How many sides does it have?
  • Does it have any corners? How many?
  • Are the sides straight or curved?
  • What can we see that is also a square?
