Shape Matchup

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

Can your preschool child match the shape cutouts with the actual shapes?


  • Colored construction paper
  • White construction paper
  • Pen or marker
  • Scissors


  1. Cut basic shapes (circle, square, rectangle, triangle, heart, and so on) out of colored construction paper.
  2. Trace all the shapes onto a piece of white construction paper.
  3. Have your child match the colored shapes to those drawn on the white paper.
