I love this activity because it is quick, easy, and mild prep.

Most days our Lil’s are only interested in an activity for a hot minute and this is one of those activities that can be done real fast and you will be left feeling accomplished because your Lil’ completed the whole thing even if they were only working for a minute.

This activity will work on shape matching and identification.

Cape Shape Search Template

*Glue

*Scissors

Step #1
Print and cut out the Cape Shape Search Template.

*Encourage your Lil’ Creator to try cutting the square, diamond, rectangle, or triangle. Having them do activities with more and more independence allows you to challenge them at the appropriate level. (It also means less prep time for you, SCORE!)

Step #2
Glue the colored shapes to the correct spot on the cape.

Teacher Tip

After completing this activity, I realized that it was a quick and easy activity for Rea to do on her own if I were to laminate it and add velcro. This activity will go in a Quiet Time Bin I have set up for her.
