These shape collages were simple to prepare and a great learning experience! I cut 6 pieces of paper into different, large shapes. I used some of my scrap paper to cut smaller shapes. B glued the smaller shapes onto the bigger, matching shape. He was excited (mostly because he got to use glue).
This picture shows how I had it set up at the table. He moved spot to spot to make a collage from the various shapes. If you are introducing shapes, just work with one shape at a time.
*Put the smaller shapes in a pile in the middle of the table and challenge your child to sort and glue them onto the correct shape (instead of already having them next to each other and ready to go).
*On a large piece of construction paper, put dots in the shape of a triangle (or another shape) and have your child glue the smaller triangles onto the dots to form the shape.
