This week we are doing colors and shapes activities for preschoolers I am teaching my toddler her shapes with this Toddler Preschool Shapes Resist Painting Activity. The best way to teach a child shapes or anything for that matter is to make it a hands on learning experience which is exactly what this activity did. What I loved most about this was that it was a very simple activity that she could complete on her own (minus me cutting shapes and removing the backing of the contact paper).

- Paint brushes (I used mine from Lakeshore Learning but these ones have wonderful reviews.)
Toddler and Preschool Shapes Resist Painting Activity:
Cut out the shapes you would like from your contact paper.
Let your child stick them on their page.
Is it just my toddler who likes to unstick things that she sticks on???
Let your toddler or older kids paint completely over the sides of all the shapes. All three of my kids joined in on this and really had fun with it.
I love how my toddler (on the left) starts slyly painting her hands, then gazes up at me with this cheeky smile on her face in hopes that I didn’t see that she was hand painting. (As if I have a problem with that….?!)
Leave it out to dry and then…. Remove the shapes…. TADA ! A beautiful Shapes Resist Painting Activity all complete! 🙂
