Toddler Activity: Drawing and Colouring Shape Friends

Our toddler activity of the day was SHAPE FRIENDS. It is fun and useful for identifying and colouring shapes.

This was an impromptu activity as I sat to teach her the concept of “after” in numbers but she got bored after a while. So the shapes here are mostly doodles.

This was a revision of the shapes she knows, but this time she actually filled in / scribbled colours inside the shapes thus paying more attention to the number of edges, corners and angles of each shape.

Shape Friends – Toddler Activity for Homeschool / Preschool

I then went ahead with shading and then making some shape friends that she loved.

How to go about it:

1. Draw shapes with different crayons while explaining it all to the toddler. If your kid is big enough to draw shapes, then let the kid draw in colours and sizes of his/her choice.

2. Let them pick the same colour of the shape and fill the colours.

3. Then take the colours and show them how they can fill in the gaps.

4. Draw some caps and faces, and make #shape friends. Have lots of fun making stories with shape friends!
