What’s The Shape

Print and cut out each of the cards for your little one. There are a couple ways to play this game. You can lay all of the cards face down for a classic matching and memory game or hold up one of the silhouette cards and have your child select the right object from face-up options.

Find My Feet

These cute animals have lost their feet in this matching game. Print and cut along the lines to create your cards. You can either dump them all in a bag or box and have your toddler draw until they find a match or lay them face down for a matching game.

Pre Writing Practice

Have your toddler trace the shapes to connect the dots. Your little one can practice numbers too while you read aloud and they follow along.

Monster Meal

These monsters are hungry for their dinners. Will your little one feed them all veggies? Print and cut out the shapes and have your child distribute balanced meals to each monster.

Play Dough Mat

Print out these mats and either laminate or place plastic wrap over the sheets to create a mess-free play surface. Your child can use playdough to complete the exercises.

Pie Counting

After printing and cutting out the pie and blueberries, have your child count and place the correct amount of blueberries on the pie. This game helps practice numbers and you can use it to introduce addition and subtraction.
