Colorful Shapes Sorting and Collage Art

My kiddos love love love stickers!  For Christmas we received this HUGE bag of foam shape stickers and the kiddos have since used them on plenty of random pictures.  

I pulled them out again to create a sorting activity to keep my two youngest busy when working with Big Brother.

And when the sorting part was over, it turned into a very colorful collage for our school room wall.

This was a great opportunity to talk about shapes, colors, and sizes with my 2 year old,  and to continue strengthening fine motor muscles with both kiddos as our foam shapes were stickers.

What you need:

To prep the activity I gathered four sheets of card stock and a couple handfuls of the shape stickers.

I put one shape on each piece of card stock to guide my kiddos in their shape sort.

Once it was all ready to go, I encouraged my kiddos to come to the table to do the activity.  

They were to grab a shape, peel off the back, and put it on the matching shape.

There's no right or wrong way to do this! Simply peel and match!  Make a design or place the shapes without rhyme or reason!

Continue until all the shapes have been used....

 To make our collage art, we simply put the four pieces of card stock in an old frame!

I LOVE it!
