Toddler Activity – Shape Matching

I tried a simple toddler activity, shape matching with N using foam shapes (Target dollar spot).

 I traced them onto small pieces of paper and put them upright in a muffin tin and we worked together to put them in the right spot.

N didn’t want to leave the papers in the muffin tin so next we used them like an outline puzzle. She really liked this activity.

    Great idea! I knew I should have bought some of those!

    THank you, thank you! I did buy those and have spent most of the days picking them up off the floor, since they are thrown all over the place every day. Now we can actually do something with them 🙂

    Medina Family,
    You are welcome! (Although I’m still picking them up all over the place. =) )

    Also try: matching, sorting by color, sorting by shape, write letters on them to match, use them for counting.

    I love the toddler activities you’ve been posting lately. I have a little one who is ready to play… you’d think the second time around I’d remember some ideas but my brain doesn’t always work. Thanks for recharging it with these fun and easy ideas.

    Love this idea! I bought the same shapes and didn’t think of such a fun way to play with them. Thanks for sharing!

    You know, we have these shapes already. I got them from the one spot and have used them for stamping and with paint. What a great idea for a learning activity! Will try it out today. Vicky from

    Great idea! We’ll have to try that soon. My two year old is currently sitting next to me doing a simple letter matching game! He LOVES it. I always love to see new great educational ideas!
