LEARNING ABOUT SHAPES WITH FOOD!

LEARNING ABOUT SHAPES WITH FOOD!

We love this sorting activity using ingredients to fill shapes on a piece of paper!! It offers a wonderful sensory experience, whilst learning to identify & match shapes. It also gives adults an opportunity to talk about the ingredients, their texture, color, taste & why they are good for growing bodies!!

Remember to choose/prepare developmentally appropriate pieces of food as the pieces will likely end up in your child's mouth and could pose a choking risk.  

*Please note this activity requires supervision.

What you'll need:

- Paper

- Pencil

- Plastic sleeve

- Selection of cut up fruit and vegetables and any interesting shaped ingredients (think pretzels, mandarin segments etc.)

Time to play!

- Outline different shapes on a piece of a paper (triangle, moon, square, star etc.)

- Place the piece of paper inside a plastic sleeve

- Prep the ingredients and lay them out on a tray

- Encourage your child to match the food and shapes

- Eat the leftovers!!
