FREE Shape activities, games and crafts for elementary.
Reinforce all of the 2D shapes with this super-fun Easter basket craft. The pattern page has the various shapes printed on eggs. Simply run off on a variety of colors of construction paper. Children trim, add some shading with crayons & glue them "inside" their basket. I've also provided base-10 patterns, should you want to practice place value at the same time. 2D shapes: hexagon, circle, oval, square, rectangle, triangle, rhombus, trapezoid, pentagon, octagon, star & heart.
"Here's my scarecrow made out of a circle, triangle, rectangle & square!" The skirt is a trapezoid. There are pattern patches for a hexagon, pentagon, octagon, oval & rhombus, so you can practice those shapes as well. Includes a boy pattern too. I made the "hay hair" by putting a sheet of yellow construction paper in my shredder.
It's hard enough for little ones to learn all of the 2D shapes, let alone have to identify them out in the "real world". But this is part of that report card standard, so I designed "Hootie" the owl. His 2D-shaped EYES match that shape on his tummy. These are examles of the "real world" shapes that he sees! There are 3 owl craft options to choose from; plus extras, like pocket chart cards & posters for your super-cute display.
Have a blast reviewing 2D shapes with these adorable snowmen. Take a closer look & see that the snowman's head is 1 of 8 2D shapes. Their eyes, nose & cheeks also match that shape! The name of the shape is on the hat band. Completed projects make a super-cute bulletin board too.
