A few months back, while focusing on the Letter F in Tot School, I made a shape sorting activity using some printable flowers and a little free hand action.  Little Sis was to sort the flowers to the right vase by matching the shapes.

My little girl loved this and so I thought I'd try my hand at making it into an activity to share with you!

This low-prep matching activity can be made into a file folder game by attatching velcro to the flowers, or use this printable one time and have your little one glue the flowers to the correct vase.

Once you have printed out the worksheets, take some time to prep the activity by cutting out each individual flower.  No need to cut exactly along the edge of the flower-- a simple circle cut will do just fine!

There are 9 flowers all together; 3 of each shape.

Your child's task is to match the flowers to the correct vase.  Each vase has a shape on it; one has a triangle, one has a square, and one has a circle.  This hands-on activity is a great way to introduce and teach your child basic 2D shapes!

Each vase will have three flowers- one of each color.

As your child is matching each flower to a vase, talk about the attributes of each shape.  

A circle is curved and has no starting or end point.

A triangle has three corners and three sides.

A square has four corners and four equal sides.

If your child is up for the challenge, have him/her find an object in the room that is a circle, triangle, and/or square!

  1. Very cute! I'm pinning to use with my toddler when he's ready. Laminating it and adding velcro dots would make it even more fun.
