1. Cookies with shapes ? – Cooking with your children is probably your favorite type of mess in the kitchen! Get the cookie dough ready and make cookies in all different shapes. As you make a cookie in certain shape, repeat the shape’s name. Who doesn’t love learning while making sweets?

2. Shape sort ? – Make big shapes (circle, square, triangle and rectangle) on the carpet with a duct tape. Take a box and put various items from the house with those shapes and have your child sort them in the corresponding shapes on the floor.

3. Fishing for shapes ? – Cut out fish forms from colorful paper and draw different shapes on them. Take a stick tie a string on it and in the string tie a piece of magnet and have your little ones start ”fishing”. When they get a fish they should say the shape that’s on it.

4. Educational app ? – Download an app that has many games to learn English. Lingokids is the perfect app for preschool children learning English.

5. Books – There are many books that would help your child learn the shapes. Some of our favorites include: ”Color Zoo” by Lois Ehlert, ”Shapes, Shapes, Shapes” by Tana Hoban, ”Circus Shapes” by Stuart J. Murphy and Edward Miller. We have previously shared some tips about how to teach a child to read in English, so these books are the perfect excuse to work on the reading skills too.

6. Walk on shapes ? – Draw big shapes on a big art paper and tape it to the floor. Get your child to walk from the beginning to the end only stepping on a particular shape.

7. Cloud shapes ☁ – It’s summer and we love spending time outdoors. While resting from running around, look at the clouds and let your child say what shapes do the clouds have.
