This printable takes that interest and incorporates it into a wide range of educational activities from counting to shape recognition.

Shape Matching Game:
There are two versions of these cards. You can create a straight forward matching game or you can create a puzzle matching game.
Cut apart the all the cards on both pages.
Glue to cardboard or pretty scrapbook paper with the picture facing up.
Laminate the cards.
Version #1: Flip all the cards over with the back facing up. Have the child flip two cards over to try to find a match.
Version #2: Cut at the dotted lines to detach the shame name from one set of cards. Let the child try to match the correct name to the shape pictured.
Emotions Matching Mat
Setup for this one is really easy. Lay out the two page background side by side. Cut out the shapes. Have the child match the shape to the correct emotional state.
There are two pages of pattern strips with some being more difficult that others. Cut out each strip along with the shapes in the boxes
Place the strips down along with all the shapes in small individual piles. Have the child build the pattern on the strip using the boxes.
Count and Trace Cards
Count and Trace cards are one of our favorite activities. They are easy to set up and can be used in several different ways.
Setup #1: Cut apart each card. Let your child count the objects and trace the number with their finger.
Setup#2: Cut apart at the dotted lines to match the number to the correct amount of objects.
Setup#3: Laminate the cards and use as dry erase trace numbers or play dough mats.
Shape Matching Mat
Print out the mats and cut out the shapes. Place the mats down and have the child match the shapes to the correct mat. You can expand this activity by including 3d objects to sort as well.
Shape Tracing Pages
These pages work well laminated or placed in a dry erase pack. The child will practice tracing the different shapes. Each page has three shapes to trace.
This pack explores shapes, emotions, patterns, and number recognition skills.
