Sharing a super simple idea today: DIY touch and feel shapes! This is perfect to make for young children that are learning about shapes, involving their sense of touch in the learning process. (See these Touch & Feel Counting Cards and Touch & Feel Colour Cards too!)
Also, get your hands on this Ebook-Colors and Shapes for more fun, frugal and hands-on activities to learn about colors and shapes!
It is an easy DIY idea that is frugal too!
For these touch and feel shape cards you will need:
Simple bend the pipecleaners into the desired shapes(I only made a few to show you, but will add more to our collection soon).
PS: You can add the shape name to the cards for kids that are ready to learn the names as well.
Let your child trace the shapes with his finger and tell you the name of the shape. Make it a guessing game by closing eyes and guess which shape you feel only by touching and feeling the cards.
I am thinking these cards would work well if made into letters and numbers too…What do you think?
