Shape Pictures

Stuck inside while it is chilly? Make some shape art! Cut shapes out of scraps of paper and see what kinds of pictures you can make. Do the square and triangle look like a house? Can you make a tree? What can we do with these circles? The possibilities are endless. Have fun exploring shapes and create some magnificent art at the same time!


SING

Draw a Shape

(As you do this rhyme together, draw the shapes in the air with your finger.)
Draw a rectangle, draw a rectangle,
Shaped like a window.
Draw a rectangle, draw a rectangle,
With corners four.
Draw a circle, draw a circle,
Round as can be.
Draw a circle, draw a circle,
Just for me.
Draw a triangle, draw a triangle,
With corners three.
Draw a triangle, draw a triangle,
Just for me.
